Tinny, Cedar Waxwing birds’ giggles;

common among the scents of

pencil shavings and bleach.

Navigate these halls

that are always just a touch too narrow

for all the adolescent victims.

They push, swim,  to class,

camouflage the pinches, trips-

don’t you know the stage-whispers

CARRY,

while instructors stand “at ease”

next to their classroom door

with occasional soft rebukes

for silence.
