Elysian Heights Elementary School, September 10, 2010

One set of squares in the empty schoolyard
Two times five and the beanbag sits on square one
Three o'clock shadows of the heart shaped mulberry tree leaves
Four more days to go before they unlock the gates
Five fingers curling through the zinc-flavored chain link fence
Six more minutes til the DASH bus stops at Baxter
Seven is the room I'll be in when school starts
Eight is the room that had the famous cat mascot
Nine is how old I'll be when school's out again
Ten dollars and two quarters for the movies today...Hooray!
