Movie Stars and Boys

Movie Stars and Boys

Her heart just about leaps
out of her
B-Team field hockey jersey
as she tongue flicks her new braces.
Awkward.
Fully Aware.
She strides directly to him.
And just there,
between lockers 237 and 239,
Katherine – now Kat –
learns that true love is
not just
for movie stars,
and boys
really do
notice girls who wear
their hair down.
Because, to her,
“Hey.”
is the sweetest,
most beautiful poetry
she’s ever heard.
