no school really. “they walk, but they're not there.” that's what

i told mrs. burke 8th period. she said, “what?” and i said,

“no one seems to be home.” then a little voice from the hall

said, “hey, your the poet guy.” but when i opened my mouth

nothing came out, and come 9th period, when my passion

for the symbol was at an all day high, no one noticed my presence,

and continued to laugh at the skinny kid's black eye.
