Daddy says ignore the corpulent monster
In biology class,
The one who sends you notes labeled
“Keys to a sustainable relationship one:
Limit runoff of affection
And the leaching of resentment
Tickle me amoeba
Without you I am haploid”
Mitosis wailing selfishly
Creates replications of this torture
In history class
With the boy who thinks I am a reincarnation of Napoleon
And he is my loyal Cambaceres
Takes it too far
And is banished from high school
For bringing in a sword
Stolen from a young antique store
But at least I got to touch it,
Deltas
Estuaries
The border of Italy and Germany
Here we meet
