“I write only because
There is a voice within me
That will not be still.”
-Sylvia Plath


It was a dull day in February
She told us how she had a student
During blood tests
(back when they were allowed)

But Mrs. Doe, why doesn't it match?
And she told us how she looked at her and said
Maybe check your work,
you may be incorrect.

Avoid, avoid
She said the girl went home
Said
Mom, why does it not match?
Said
Dad, it doesn't make any sense.

They said the unbelieved truth
And while she said this
The class was quiet
We all were imagining

The girl walking home,
Her mind darting, breath quickening

Wondering why
They never had any photo albums.
And how lying is such an easy skill
They should teach it in trade school.
