Late! Late! Late!
With my binder jam packed,
Two books, and a 42oz Mountain Dew
I rush up the stairs

Step. Step. Step.
In one corner, a couple swaps spit
In another two girls discuss the cute guy
from science class

Cute! Cute! Cute!
Up the stairs my crush
Walks toward me.

No! No! NO!
My toe catches on the step.

Down. Down. Down.
Instead of looking at him
In an instant I am staring at the stairs

Crap! Crap! Crap!
Mountain Dew explodes,
Final reviews take flight,
My face turns red,
And the cute guy erupts into laughter

I was in a huge rush getting to class and my hands were full. I had a crush on a guy named Dustin and as i was walking up the stairs he was walking down the stairs. i tripped and everything in my hands covered the stairs.
