Odysseus

(Preparation for Epic Journey)
Packing:

  • Hero
  • Wax
  • Rope
  • Heat
  • Freshman (incl. various accoutrements)

I'm drinking tea - hot and milky. Book open, bridged between my two thighs. I lean in to mark notes and feel my shirt slide forward too. Remembering my first time reading it in ninth grade and all the good parts explained away by Mrs. Hardink. That year I ate a Suzie Q for the first time and didn't know that a wisp of cream on a lip was sexy. But I heard the boy next to me whisper it.
