quickly briskly smoothly
walking over quick shine tile
hi to you nod of head
backpack of middle weight
gripping coffee

two on a bench above a loud stairwell
a tug at black stretch fabric behind her elbow
and leave a feeling in a pot
to boil to expand to enchant
when the pair is drunk on Friday

moves anxiously to class

through a square tunnel
castle posters green schoolchild artwork
latch-key light hangs over 9:00 am errands
shines on the tile floor of the hall
