Plain white blank wall
Sitting Indian style with my head in my small hands
One Mississippi, 2 Mississippi, 3 Mississippi
I hear the other kids laughing and playing
Four Mississippi, 5 Mississippi, 6 Mississippi
Hands fiddle. Lips bitten.
Seven Mississippi, 8 Mississippi, 9 Mississippi
Michael overreacted, it didn't hurt that bad.
Ten Mississippi, 11 Mississippi, 12 Mississippi
Ugh, almost done
Thirteen Mississippi, 14 Mississippi, 15 Mississippi
I peek around the small corner covering me from the fun, Mom's baking cookies.
Mm … chocolate chip, my favorite.
Sixteen Mississippi, 17 Mississippi, 18 Mississippi
Good-bye plain white blank wall
Nineteen Mississippi, 20 Mississippi
I hear the buzz of the kitchen timer
Angela, you can come out now.
