When We Were Younger

If I could make love to you
Like packing this sandwich into my lunchbox
I would.

While they draw Periodic tables
And graph parabolas
My pen traces the curves of your body.

But unwittingly, unprepared,
Like only studying the night before -
You being the test

I'd fail miserably.
If only in sex ed class they'd actually
Talk about sex.

Brilliant as always :-)

Are you in eight grade? This is just what we've been studying this year, quadratic equations and the periodic table
