Third Grade

Teacher in

white gauchos.

Snaps gum,

platform shoes.

Lanette Ferguson

moves away

after Christmas.

Brother plays

Moody Blues,

forever autumn.

A winter cry

wearing loneliness.

Brent S.

likes my

long hair.

Asks me

to go

with him.

Mom asks,

Go where?

Cut hair

not interested

in boys.

Play dolls

in laundry

room with

my cat.

Make floppy

paper dolls

at recess

with Sarah

and her

green markers.
