My Second Year

The recess bell screeches loudly
Students cramped in quarters
dismiss the high pitch

Ding dong repeatedly it fires
No one surrenders

You and I dazzled 
Speak with eyes only
Seldom twitching, gazing still 
Time trickles down in sinewy
streams of desire 
we are fixed , motionless

This ten minute break bleeds
through the souls of our feet 
breaking our silence

We retreat to separate rooms
 troubling distance between us.
