by Masago: Rengay #25 (Feb 17-23, 2008), Verses 1-6 (of 6)
A school of fish / under the lake ice — deep winter.
Recess, one hour away — thoughts of fun and snow.
We come inside / after the bell... the smell / of wet woolens.
Science class — other guys try burning / more than sulfur.
Mid-term exam week — my candle lit at both ends.
Under the covers / Saturday morning — thinking / about homework.
