Spots on the floor,
A long account of the relative success
Of each of the last five passers,
Cigar smoke and soap bubbles.

Leaning forward.

The noise clears and some children
Get up from the picnic blanket.

Wind gets in the microphone with the soloist,
And we're taking bets
On which Dr. Seuss book the salutatorian will quote.

Sunlight long and mellow
Down evacuated hallways.
