Pluck. Pluck. Pluck, into the sink.
Focus, it's time for homework.
Chairs scraping the ground.
In a classroom, in the library.
People are setting off a bomb inside me.
Tick toc Tick Moi.
Violently my leg shakes.
No! This isn't supposed to be happening!
I'm supposed to be calm, studying.
Studying my surroundings?
NO! Focus. Close out the noise. Look at your homework assignment.
Stop your shaking leg.
Read the directions.
Here we go.
Homework time again.
