Sunflowers, southern Colorado

~~ 1 ~~
spreading jam thickly
on a slice of whole wheat bread—
ravenous schoolboy
~~ 2 ~~
pollen in the air
making the young schoolboy sneeze—
his homework scatters
~~ 3 ~~
A young schoolboy hops
froglike to biology
down the long hallway.
~~ 4 ~~
His former teacher
pats the schoolboy on his head
as though he’s her pet.
~~ 5 ~~
through summer-scorched weeds
schoolboys pushing their way home—
crooked is the path
~~ 6 ~~
Playground katydids—
schoolboys pay no attention
as they chase the girls.
~~ 7 ~~
Bored out of his gourd,
a schoolboy totes up reasons
for being outdoors.
~~ 8 ~~
The hottest schoolboy’s
unavailable right now,
having been grounded.
~~ 9 ~~
Little red capsules—
the schoolboy’s gulping them down
as fast as he can.
~~ 10 ~~
shoplifting schoolboy—
his teachers thought him honest
until his arrest
~~ 11 ~~
In this schoolboy’s life
someone needs to intervene
before it’s too late.

  1. These are wonderful! And someone, please ~ get that hot-schoolboy off his grounding!

  2. How quickly hope can fade.. I wanted to believe in that beautiful yellow flower shining forever.. Let’s hope his spirit is restored

  3. I think I was that schoolboy many years ago…ah me! However I never got arrested. I think you must have had a lot of fun writing this one.

  4. Quite a downhill journey! One or two of those came a bit close to home

  5. Oh, the musings of a teacher! Shoplifting is such a temptation for so many.
