Private Education

I rename them.

See the one with the pecan skin, 

the chubby square face?

He is now Gabriel.

And the tall one, infinity legs, 

walks like a bird, hair so blonde it’s white?

She is Emma.

 

I see Jake and John and Claire

Everywhere.

 

But I’m missing my Luis.

Nadeline. Jasmine. Fan.

 

This a homogeneity that

oozes green paper, and I

(only sometimes guiltily)

soak up the benefits.
