Kindergarten

Mrs. Fallicker 
    a Gurnsey dairy cow 
chewing her gum cud, 
    laughing 
moo laughs 
    about Bobbi 
the first child in our class 
    to eat paste. 

I walk amongst them 
    with my eager thoughts 
tracing J's in dust jackets 
     with my pinky finger 
eating letters, 
     A's like dry cheerios. 

The gloss 
     of library book pages 
thick with the musky smell of 
     forest floor 
               moss. 

This school is foreign.
