THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 350

Floating

As the crowd fell away,
my deliberate disobedience
made me feel as if I was floating.
If someone called my name,
I would pretend not to hear.
I imagined myself ascending
into the sky, fading into the blue,
leaving the scene…
I was almost to the main road
when something brought me back
down to earth with a thump
I could almost feel.
A fire truck turned the corner
in a flash of red, followed by a second one.
There really is a fire.
This is not a drill.

I scanned the school’s horizon
for smoke.
