Pantoum: Album

A scene in The Birds
reminded me of the time
you told me about the time
the old man kept calling you Miss

which reminded you of the time
you played an old woman in a play
in which a young man calls you Miss
We were standing in your kitchen

You played a nun in a play
It was our senior year in college
when we stood in your kitchen
and I fondled you through your shirt

It was our freshman year in college
We’d just met during Foreign Studies
and I kept looking down your shirt
while you were looking away

We met during Foreign Studies
when you told me about the time
that you had to look away
during a scene in The Birds
