Boy Watch - Poem by Barbara Talman

Rural boys growing by cattails and thickets,
wrestling while waiting for the bus.
Towheaded they tumble,
pulling string and rock, comparing prizes of their own.
Jean jacketed they pound their canvas shoes like rubber mallets;
grave scattered, floured, they board the bus.
