Schoolgirl

 

Your bare legs

Warm in the sun,

With little pale hairs

That have never been shaved;

Smiling now at some

Game on your smartphone,

Fingers working

Tap tap tap tap tap;

Serious now, Smiling now,

Your lips are dry;

You pull out some lip balm and

Settle back to your game.

 

Schoolgirl:

You move for

Another passenger and

Scratch your eye. 

School is so many

Stations away.

Light hearted

 

It’s the smile I like;

It says: I really am happy

And after work,

After I have served

A hundred like you,

I will be light hearted.
