where do the popular kids go

April 23, 2019


occasionally, during lunch when I
walk up two stories to eat with friends
my eyes follow the sound of music
and I pause.

a figure at the piano further down,
the hall where the janitor never
turns on the lights.

no one was ever with him,
as he bent over the sighing keys.
i knew he had many friends:
people knew his name & jersey.

he was well known, well liked,
but no one was ever with him
when he played sad-sweet piano
on the second story
during lunch.
QUICK EDIT! People thought i was saying his name was Jersey but I was saying people KNEW his JERSEY as in he was a football star. sorry lol
