The Cavalry Of Waves - Poem by Robert Rorabeck

The cold front pushes in the rains
After Joe has gone
Back to Michigan—I take my class outside
To write about nature
Until they cannot stand it anymore—
Baseball players come from another school
To fill in the diamonds of our backyards,
And at least five or six of the girls
Want to see them
And pretend to interview them—
And daylight proves to be a disappointment,
For it is not beautiful while we are outside—
I can walk from student to student
And dream of girls who do not exist,
And give prompts on personification and
While a hypothetical mermaid swims beside
The cavalry of waves that make
A swimming pool for the whitest moon.
