Yiska sits
on the grass
for the school

photograph
with others
looking out

at the man
with the box
camera

calling out
watch the bird
or say cheese

but she thinks
of Benny
and her at

lunchtime
behind the
maths classroom

sitting there
on a wall
both kissing

and holding
and tonguing
and touching

getting hot
and alive
with each their

desire
on fire
then someone

knocked on glass
to alert them
and shoo them

off from there
some teacher
mouthing words

gesturing
so now she
sits brooding

not smiling
no longer
being kissed

or embraced
or close touched
just posing

so undone
no pleasure
no fun.
