That Boy

Day 7: Peace Poetry Postcard Month

Dedicated to my students and all students and educators everywhere.
We will never give up.
The boys with birds in their hair need us.
Love, your teacher.

He had birds in his hair,
that boy.
One white one, one red one,
in a mussy nest of midnight hair.
They didn’t care.
They were a peaceful amalgamation.
One boy, two birds,
and his hair.
