Cooties

Cooties, my boy
Have no sexual preference
They don't stick to girls
They stick to boys
They stick to girls
As a general rule.
Mites are small insects
That bite and spread disease.
now u see y i dont like gurls
Child, I am an entomologist
I study spiders
And ants
And butterflies
And, yes,
Cooties.
but she smels
Son, have you tried
Soap?


-Jacob Baumgartner





First Crush


Heart PANG
From the 80s movies
Swoon
Heart shaped irises
Stomach
Insect garden
Head swarming
Conscious dream
Smile
Permanently pinned
Sight
Overlaid falsely
Heart RING
Calling to realization


-Livi Moehn





Anti-Valentine

The table is set,
the candles are lit...
I don't have a date,
because I lack charm and wit.
No roses.
No chocolates,
No little black boxes.
Just a dinner for two
plus the 'me,' minus the 'you.'
I'm not gonna text, I won't even look,
but you can expect a poke
on that Facebook.
More and more dessert for me
turning on a romantic comedy...
So I'll cuddle alone, without a bloke
and Laugh Out Loud when I make a joke.
Valentine's Day is stupid,
not gonna believe in that guy they call Cupid.
I'll stick with my violets of blue...
Having an Anti-Valentine's Day,
plus the 'me,' minus the 'you.'

-Natalie Pettigrew




My First Crush

It's hard to express the feeling
It's hard to describe the words
I did not know what to expect
I was going only on what I had heard
I do know the anticipation of what
Was about to happen was
Froth with nerves and raving thoughts
But when it hit me I did not expect
The sting, the shiver and all
The emotions it brought
My enthusiasm, excitment, and all
The rest was hard to throttle
You see my first crush, now unforbidden
Was orange and in a glass bottle.


-Mr. R. Bachman





I remember that time...

I remember that time
Back in the first grade
At seven years old
I thought I had it made

His name was Jacob
His eyes were sky-blue
And sort of seemed
To pierce right through you.

I was too young
To know it wasn’t real
But I was caught up
In that warm fuzzy feel.

I remembered his hair
In chocolate brown
He was the cutest boy
In this one-horse town.

What I loved most of all
Was when he colored
He stayed inside the lines
He was not like the others.

I followed him around
In a giddy little rush
With little plaid jumpers
And a sparkly hair brush

With my braided pigtails
And his Converse All-Stars
I really did think
that we would go far.

But he didn’t notice me
In his Little League rush
But I’ll never forget
That very first crush.

And even today
As I flip those Big Macs
I remember a time
Of plastic train tracks.

A time when the Earth
Did not seem so sad
Where all things were good
And nothing was bad.

-Julia Wiegand




She was in the air

She was in the air
I was standing there in awe
Her name was...football

-Jason Bogdan





Barriers

Hands that move in smooth gymnastics,
Expressing words and thoughts
I can't interpret.
I say that
I like the way his
Hair is curling
Around his ears,
But he doesn't hear.
He never does.
We stand so close,
But in different worlds.
No matter how I yell,
He can never know
How I feel.

-Renee Kurtz




My sweet, my love

My sweet, my love,
my passion burns for you.
My heart feels like a dove
My emotions are so true.
You always are there,
in times of happiness and joy,
In the pain and despair,
To me, you'll never annoy.
You go well with anyone
But yet, you've chosen me
Some don't understand, they make fun.
I know that we're to be.
You're my life;
my entire being
You ignite my strife
kindle my believing.

-Josh Rauh
