An hour past mid-day
it is 62º
but it is the warmest, 
sunniest day
so far this year.

Looking down on the lawn
students are in short sleeves or shorts
chatting
playing frisbee
flirting. 

You are laying on the grass 
in a short black skirt,
high heeled boots
pretending to pay attention 
only to your cell phone
which you hold up
so you can watch
a boy playing frisbee.

From 9 stories up
I can see 
4 inches of bare thigh
beet red
and I wonder
if you thought about the long winter
when you put that outfit on.
