Way To Win



Nearly grinning

Holding it in

Trap the whopping smile

which is trying to stretch across my face

like a cat in front of the fire


Radiator cheeks

Laser-blazing stares

I look down at my shoes

which dance like nervous beetles

beneath my trouser legs


Everyone claps

At last

I can breathe again.

And grin

But not too much

or they'll say I’m a big head



like a sore thumb

Standing out like a star

Popcorn bursts in my belly until finally

The teacher says, "Sit down."


I pretend

it's not important

as kids eyeball my prize

But really I want to rewind time

and do it all again
