Intro to Anthropology

The female of the species is more deadlier than the male Space (and Rudyard Kipling) 

It takes 63 seconds 
to get to class; he knows 
because he holds his breath 
the whole time. 

Her locker’s in Hall C,
and he 
can’t look 
or be 
or breathe. 

But when he gets to his seat
he smiles, 
her name spun 
sugar on his tongue.

    I love the double meanings in “seconds” and “class.”

    My favorite part: “her name spun sugar”

    Love this so much. ❤
