next

I wanted both the IKEA furnishings

& the destruction of them.

Unexpected, even to me, between

classes, I would grab my inside-

out t-shirt, just below my neck

scrunch it up in my fist

then look around 

look terrified

look down at my white knuckles

look up at the kids I knew

throw myself against the lockers

again and again

never looking at the expressions

of anyone around

never cared to.
