A little more from “School Me”

Gail Grivnau chews on my pencil

I run my fingers over
Her incisor marks
Still moist with sexy saliva
Her wanton mouth
Her worldly Minneapolis ways
Left on my yellow number 2

I am dreaming
Of her in the backseat
Of my Mom’s Chevy Malibu
When out of the blue
Mr. Watkins shouts
Pencils down everyone
The test done.

— Gary Bloom
