THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 125

Suspension

I didn’t get to see the damage
I did to Lindsey’s face.
A teacher broke through
the wall of students,
grabbed my arm,
dragged me through
the cafeteria,
through the halls,
to the office,
and sat me down in a hard chair.
My head buzzed with the beginning
of a headache.
I couldn’t find the words to defend
my action.
All I could do is stare
at my knuckles.
They were dotted
with speckles of Lindsey’s blood.
“Ten-day suspension,”
the teacher said.
She seemed surprised
that I was not arguing.
I didn’t need to.
I did what I had to do.
