Upskirt

I first learned of upskirting when I was eight
how a girl’s private parts could be something to rate -
our teacher brought mirrors in, wood strips and glue
for periscope making, so exciting so new!

Then we heard Johnny Jefferson’s under desk snickers -
perverting his effort to peek at our knickers.
