Gisele

A Short Story
By MARK ZADROZNY
HE LAST DAY. A brilliant, sparkling
day..And then the shrill bell with the
robin's nest in it would dong the end of
th class. The smile of the teacher, paint-
el on with the same shade of red that
adorned the army of Babes From Toyland
on the walls and in the baskets, would
soon have to smile for the last time.
Still, the world was mess. Crayola writ-
ing candles lighting the floor up. Chunks
of colored purple, pink, and orange wood
showing the devastion of a train wreck-
age. Real enough for the girl who had
tp pick them up. The children laughed at
that. Everything must be picked up be-
fore the end. Toys galore, then all gone.
The robins flew away in anticipation,
then ten minor chairs at three tables
were dismissed. The giraffe slide, who
had thought of relaxing, bore the brunt
of one last body, bowing as the lump slid
down. The kids now, rushed out bounded
down, and -were soon past the huge wood-
en dQor.
Z;Kept--high above, on the very top of
three cement steps stood Gisele. Only for

a moment. Resplendent in a crisp spring
dress with a dart behind her, she held
silent court for seconds over the others
before the long walk. Her flowing blonde
hair lay in beautiful curled ringlets. The
clear, glassy green eyes were the. only
things which did not quiver. Her eyes
surveyed the sight below her. Now the
walk came .And then Gisele made it a
run. Tore down the steps. Ignored the
rest.' Concentrated only on me. Soap
white pants began to move.
Ah-quick turn: a game! Quickly a
shout gurgled up from the crowd: a
game! And again: run! Spring became
summer when Gisele caught my jacket:
a dodge! "Fools!," sang Gisele.
The dry dust and the glass broken by
the patrol boys with white stripes across
their chests slid beneath both our feet.
Then cement forced at an angle through
the writhing of a dying elm. And we
came to it. The cement and pants rub-
bed together went through skin and con-
crete mingled. And the green glass spar-
kled around and in me.
Eagerly I looked up at Gisele, but all
I saw was her dart. So I cried. Gisele
left. So did her crisp spring dress.

Digging in the Temple Mounds
By DAVID TUCKER
I collect the wolves' teeth
'The awls, the ceremonial arrows.
I dig in the black earth
Women hauled in their arms.
I look for the dance
That pressed the earth into a temple.
Sometimes I get down on my knees
And search yellow bones
With a brush and a spoon.
At the End of Allegory
By DAVID TUCKER
It's a hard winter for poetry
I've been using my poems
To start the morning fire the trouble is
I've begun to live them
This morning I burned the marriage bed
After.it collapsed the third time
We stand by the fireplace shouting
I don't love you I never loved you
And it's over.
"Digging in the Temple Mounds" and "At the End of
Allegory" are copyright C 1975 David Tucker.

Be careful with fire:
There are babes
inthe woods.
