Homework

Quick and neat as minor  
surgery, it didnít happen  

like it does in the movies.  
A cold, New England winter,  

my teenage legs spread across  
the afternoons, as his penis  

fumbled like a key. I didnít really  
love him.† Eager for practice, I wasnít  

what youíd call a slow learneró  
we cracked the books, often.
