To Awaken And Go To School Tomorrow - Poem by Robert Rorabeck

Your body was good and brown:
Your body was as good as any woman’s
Under house surrounded by the indigenous landscaping;
And at the pools of your swimming night, my scars
Looked nice,
Laid out on the other side of the wall from the table and chairs:
The house that had a television, the house that had
A wife,
And the pool lay in unused shadows, the canal behind
In a constellation of twin red stars;
And I dreamed that you were my wife, while the entire
Population slept, so that they could not believe that they would
Have to awaken and go to school tomorrow.
