High Horse

from by Georgia Fields



Watching the clock
Heʼs the patient type
So cock sure
He could get her off
Her high horse
Sheʼs riding so upright

But itʼs all in the way that she loops her Yʼs
In the messages left by the margins of
His blue lined note book

Two rows from
The blackboard, he captures
Her scent, like a predator
Must stay cool
Gotta watch for a sign
Donʼt let it get
Too hard

Itʼs all in the way that she calls his name
The sibilant sound as she moves her mouth
Around his surname

The bell threatens to
Ring, to toll, two wide eyes
Upon a smudge
Of chalk on her
Pencil skirt, he wants to
Beat it off

But itʼs all in the way that she shifts her weight
He just knows that she sees him
As more than sixteen and
Some day soon
Heʼs gonna ride on that high horse
