The words.

Standard

A stick and string of high school sports

A boyhood fantasy.

Robin Hood?

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.

“my girl”

Thirty years on the archer wonders

“Where is “My girl”?”

The arrow flies alone to the bottle cap.

Sail into the harbor of my soul; tell me your heart
