5. The Classroom

The longer I stayed in school

the less I understood.

 

Why

did the girls like dresses

and itchy tights and pointy shoes?

Why

didn't they want

the blue jeans and flannel shirts

and slouchy sneakers?

 

I began to see, a little sadly

there was something wrong with them

or

there was something wrong with me.
