even at twenty-five, i still get a kick out of heads up seven up

even at twenty-five, i still get a kick out of heads up seven up

i always cheated back then

wrapped my arms around my head so tight

always left the tiniest of cracks

to spy on shoes

paid attention to how everyone in my fifth grade class walked

 

sarah never picked up her feet

tommy was an entire marching band

ashley walked on air

ian was a mouth breather

and the new girl andrea

had to fuck up my flow

 

i was a master until we went to the sixth grade

and i had to start all over again

which took me longer because we didn’t play it as often

even less in the seventh grade

and none at all in eighth

 

yeah

i know

we had it rough back then
