Class Interrupted

 

When I came back from Enrichment, the room was dark.

Some teacher came in

In the middle of something I can’t remember.

She held conference with my teacher

And then the TV was on –

You know the one:

The big black thing,

With the huge, wheeled base.

We saw buildings on fire.

Or maybe just the smoke.

I can’t remember registering what was happening;

I just remember going home.

It’s funny how one day can change a nation

And a phone number.
