From the Bleachers MAG

By Christine Stoddard, Grinnell, IA

I sit in the bleachers
admiring his arms
his legs
his face
as he pummels the ball
as it skims the net

He’s such a fool
He’s SUCH a fool
Am I not obvious?
How can this be discreet?
Or is he ignoring me?

That wouldn’t make sense
because when he sits in the bleachers
he admires my arms
my legs
my face
as I pummel the ball
