when one week’s homework took an hour
when boys had cooties
when being older than everyone else was cool
when teachers had good handwriting

when the six graders were the biggest, smartest, scariest kids in the world
then high school and the upperclassmen were scary
being called “freshmen

when cell phones were rare
when free time existed in bountiful quatities
when liking a guy meant talking about him with your friends but hiding from him at the same time
or maybe just hiding

when everyone could sing on key
when polyrhythms were the hardest things ever
when scales at 100 were fast
when performances weren’t nerve-wracking

when bye meant see you tomorrow
and when guys were simple and love was too.
