“Odd Math Class Day Dream”

Day Dream:

The swing

Wound up

Ready to whoosh through the sweet air.

Rolling with laughter at some silly joke.

Our grins shame the Cheshire Cat

With a side of giddy.

Taste the kiss

So sudden

Like rain

Cosine 18, what’s the answer?

Across the room,

I’ve never said hello.
