Hanging Out / L’Ecole buissonnière

Hanging Out

The three of us
drinking Pepsi

Jenny leaning
against the counter

Roger next to her
his hand sliding up &

down her arm
as if he were stroking

a dog
absent-mindedly

no words
spoken

his eyes say
Watch me.

L’Ecole Buissonnière

Nous trois
buvant du Pepsi

Jenny accoudée
au comptoir

Roger à côté d’elle,
de la main lui frôle

le bras
comme s’il caressait

un chien
distraitement

sans dire
un mot

ses yeux me disent
Regarde-moi.
