Editor’s Desk: A Poem

FRIENDS AT SIXTH GRADE GRADUATION

 

A plaid bowtie and suspenders;

another wears a garland,

the third;

a button- up vest.

The three of them

know how to be with the camera;

almost sure,

mischievous,

and a little sad.

It’s in the way

they stand this day—

unmapped hands,

yet something else

in their eyes that doesn’t seem focused yet,

all the heart it will take,

the juice of men

some day.
