A BOY AND GIRL AND A RECESS KISSING IN 1962

Benny thinks
of Yiska
as he stares

out of his
high window
at the lawn

and orchard
apples ripe
butterflies

fluttering
she had sat
on his lap

at recess
them alone
out of sight

of others
she had worn
her mother's

cheap perfume
her body
close to his

her thin arms
round his neck
kissing him

he held her
narrow waist
sensed her breasts

on his chest
a woodcock
called out from

a nearby
wood loudly
a peacock

butterfly
fluttered by
caught his eye

he recalls
how his hand
had moved up

her left thigh
her kisses
on his neck

vampire like
then a bell
had rung out

from the school
they parted
and walked back

to classes
afternoon
old lessons

he wonders
what Yiska
is doing

while at home
is she too
looking out

at a sky
growing dim?
thinking of

the recess
and kisses
and of him?
