the highly anticipated bell

stabs the hollow silence

then fills it full with its blasting glare

as all the gates open


and the racers pour out like anxious lava

burst out of bloated volcanoes

holding true

to their ashy breath

and like lava

they slow down

to capture me

so I don?t escape

their slicing words

carving shapes out of me

to their liking

so I have to struggle

to put together

the jigsaw puzzle

while they, fascinated,

devotedly soak up

every word

tossed to the class.

they are here

to learn

after all.
