Geometry Class This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Graffiti walls and bubble-blowing.
Fingers drumming, disinterest showing.

Pencils scattered and papers flying.
Heads dropping, tired groaning.

Linear equations and square roots.
Spitballs flinging, far they shoot.

A draft from the window and excessive noise.
Blank stares, erasers as toys.

Fidgeting bodies and wandering eyes.
Geometry unspoken of, and so I sigh.

Wow that's great. And true :) It reminds me of those classes I've had where no one even cares except for me... not sure if that's what you're going for, but that's what I got :)
