Five in the car we piled
The drive of excitement arouse
Cops were sitting on the street
Behind the fence, it did not show

A peace sign to the eyes
A secret
A friendship in the making
A night to smile

Eleven o’clock the Time Warner Cable box gleamed
She wore what is cool and I wore whatever
We laughed
The night progressed and we danced and chatted

A peace sign to the eyes
A secret
A friendship in the making
A night to smile

Monday I came to school
Class after class
There she was
I smiled and signed

A peace sign to the eyes
A secret
A friendship in the making
A night to smile

“What are you doing?”
“Our sign?”
"That wasn’t me.”
I knew it was.

No peace sign to the eyes
No secret
No friendship in the making
No smile

I do no speak to her
Three years of silence
Her friends are not mine
That is just assumption


No peace sign to the eyes
No secret
No friendship in the making
No smile
