cell phone in class

Sitting here,
Quiet classroom.
I hear music,
Someone's phone.
Could be mine,
It has happened before.
Olsen turns around.
I slide it out,
All sneaky like.
The farther out it come,
The louder the music gets.
Quick movements,
Open...
Press end...
Close...
Music has stopped.
I jolt it to my pocket.
Nothing ever happened.
