Two Hour Tuesdays

by James Morehead

two hour tuesdays
free poetic advice downtown

hmmm

teacher's late

we're sitting in the hall
                                    some rolling joints
some discussing last friday:
trivial pursuit
                     on acid
and the difficulty
when answering questions
                                            or seeing the board

one girl
hidden behind acne and dense glasses
doesn't seem to play games on drugs
or smoke dope in hallways
she merely sits
switching between Byron
and a cluttered notebook
that snaps shut
                         instinctively
when foreign eyes
creep too close

and me
the newcomer
trying to seem hip and intelligent
trapped between thick glasses
                                                 and pot
and praying
the local robin hoods
have mercy upon my car

Next in Pony Ride in the Sky
