a poem by Hillary Lyon

Death and the School Teacher

aaahh Spring Break
just like the old days
drive down to a border town
tequila and sunshine and steaks
somewhere different somewhere far
away from her students she'll go to the disco
meet matadors on the dance floor
a shiny new vato every night
here's a gaunt one with sequin eyes
promises to give her a private tour
aahh Aztec ruins in moonlight
