Observation #5

Observation #5

A Poem by Richard Mueller

Poem based on observation.

I was sitting on the stairs at our partner school, 
part of our school's Spring play as one of the leads
I remember seeing how much bigger this school is,
compared to ours 100 plus feet from the ground
I saw a girl next to me, she had a book from the library, 
one of Frederick Douglass, she was of hispanic origin 
She seemed particularly tired and today was pajama day, 
and spirit weeks are weird, but I went with it, bringing a pillow 
I unzipped my book bag, my gym shoes, my street clothes, 
books, folders, paper, pencils, pens, and my pillow
I asked if she wanted it, something more comfy than her bag, 
and she said "No thanks" with a look of disgust 
Was it the fact it was a poo emoji pillow or was it me? 
I have the feeling I came off weird, I just don't know how I did
Is it so hard to be chivalrous anymore? In any capacity for that matter? 
I don't know, I don't tend to ask myself much anymore,

and so I move along and carry on.
