Slow Motion

December 10, 2008
By Sarah Craig, Newtown, CT

Achoo achoo…
Penetrates the near silence
Feet
Tap tap tap…
Cough cough cough…
Runs abundant
Doors open
Swish swish swish…
High heels
Tip tap tip tap…
Young feet
Pitter patter…
Rustle rustle…
Beneath desks
Look at the clock
Close your eyes
Just for a moment
.
.
.
Open them
The clock has stopped
It’s perpetual
Tick tick tick tick…
