I heard a kid say
to a friend of his
“Where you headed?”
on the way to 5th.

“Sammons,” he replied.

the kid said,
“Have fun,” and
peeled off into somewhere else.

The other
turned the hall corner and approached
the threshold of my classroom door,
where I was still standing, just for him,
like always.

“O Captain my Captain,”
he said, shaking my hand.

“Good to see ya, kiddo,”
I replied. “Come on in.”

And I’d give that
about a rating of
ohhhhh i dunno
“right on target”
“Steady as she goes, boys. Steady.”

(especially since
its only October)
