A stick and string of high school sports
A boyhood fantasy.
Or William Tell?
The girl beside him asks for help.
“Draw full, touch your cheek.”
She releases to a bulls-eye.
Sparkling blue eyes
He’s her hero.
Football boyfriend threatens
A stuffing into a locker in his future.
Thirty years on the archer wonders
“Where is “My girl”?”
The arrow flies alone to the bottle cap.
