Wednesday, September 9, 2009: The SartoriaLUST at Barneys

Social Studies

Equalizers of teenagedom—
Movie stars, class photos of friends and crushes,
Sneakers, scissors, textbooks warped
As pizza boxes.

A portable closet,
Shallow wardrobe.

The locker is the first taste of storage
Away from home in this wide world,
A metal door locked with a sequence of numbers.

Between classes, lockers serve
As lookout posts, mile markers.
Surveillance comes easy
To those passing by,
Another lesson somewhere between
Chemistry and social studies.


  1. "Shallow wardrobe." That is fantastic!!
