May

The seniors are thinking
about graduation
The juniors about prom
Sophomores, struggling
with their first AP test
or broken heart
or both
aren’t sure what to think
when everyone they know tells them
“Your junior year is the hardest.”
Freshmen and teachers
and principals too
are just looking forward
to summer
and next year
and an opportunity to get everything right
a little better, anyhow,
as they move another year
closer to being seniors.
