THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 262

Orange Soda

While we dug holes
for the Liriope,
we came across a full bottle
of orange soda
buried in the dirt.
It was two years past
its expiration date,
the boys opened it
and dared each other to drink it.
Our computer engineering teacher
and the horticulture teacher
told us to throw the bottle away,
they took that literally
and flung the bottle onto the roof.
A sticky cascade of shimmering
orange soda
poured down
upon all our heads,
and three more students
from the horticulture class
got sent to in-school suspension.
That class was really
short handed.
