By
   Mara and Danny walk through the halls together

alone, everyday - as close as two people can be

They stroll past the ripped posters,

past various announcements to join clubs,

full of bright colors that jump off the walls

urging students to become members of the Spanish club,

the tutoring service,

but Mara isn't interested,

so neither is Danny.



When Mara cuts class,

they both go to the principal's office

spending an hour in detention together.



The school wouldn't be the same

if they were apart;

closer than the hands on a clock

at twenty to eight

But in two months a lot will change;

In two months, Mara hopes to graduate

and Danny

will be born.
