Eric Paul Shaffer Three Poems
Field Trips

I was not only a little in love with Miss Nichols, so when one day she told us
Robert Kennedy and his wife Ethel were her friends, I wanted to believe her,
but I wasn’t sure. I was nobody, and she taught sixth grade in a cinderblock

school beyond the borders of the district, so how could she be anybody?
