at risk


I don't want to write dustin says
from beneath the table
as he folds a blue sheet of paper
with meticulous care
I don't want to because
I'm better at making airplanes
see this!
he throws it at my face
I don't want to write
I want you to do it for me
so I can make a better plane
one that will drop bombs
on all the mean kids
that pick on me
