Earth Science Class

There’s a low rumble of
Spring being sprung in
earth science class today
as students search for
highlighters in plastic
tool boxes and unearth
hidden hormones beneath
comparative peach fuzz.
Notebooks are unbound
and the young girls hair
is flowing soft and long
lending fringe to seat backs.
Pens are poised and loaded
with pink and blue hues
all for the doodle
of thin twining vines,
and wistful red roses
around college ruled lines.
Coy teenage chatter
turns into a clamor
explosive and happy
like an opiate poppy
drunk on poetry and song.
It’s heaven and hell
while they wait for the bell.
While they wait for the bell
which will spring them.
