Happen

The quad is slippery with yesterday’s snow

His gaze is slippery with diffidence


Do I remember him?

I do! Mike! One of the best students in his class


But it’s another semester

And there’s another Mike in another class


Almost as good, just as loved.

Why do I love them anyway?


These Caitlins (F), Mikes (M), Alexes (F/M)


Love while it lasts, a semester’s worth

I mark them, meaning to mark their minds
