For the Girls and the Boyboys

(Mr RV Esposa, 38, High School Work Education teacher)

For the girls and boyboys
who love
the sheen of fratmen
like the smell of upholstery
on posh cars
when you get too close

say
boys will be boys
one more time

For the sorority girls
who swoon
and sorrow on cue
campus figurines
fueled by med missions
and girly power

say
he had it coming
but out loud

For the fratmen
who care
enough to assume the wheel
and blow the horn
illuminating us
while touching each other’s
lives

say
you can’t understand
and you’re right
