Homecoming With Latent Blues

that mandarin character

under your moral sleeve

doesn't mean what you once thought

none of your friends

can decipher such symbols

so you're left in the crypt

so straighten your hair and line your eyes

don't think about style

just think about

how great it would be

to have the quarterback

kissing you

while thinking of

his latest touchdown

and I'll buy the snacks

at the concession stand

all proceeds go towards your high school

which needs new desks

because your stupid younger brother

carved his initials in every single one

keep thinking about fall

when you'll end up in state school

but I still wonder 

how many times

you've honestly thought 

about honing your skills

of careful tightrope walks 

and calculated puppet shows
