Recess

4th grade playground,

All the cool girls in a circle dancing

And me.

From time to time

We played church,

Imitating how older ladies shouted

When they felt the Holy Ghost.

“I dare you to act like you shouting and fight Angelique.”

And so without hesitation I did just that.

“Fight! Fight!”

Ahhh there it was: attention.

And suspension.

    1. Thanks yes yes childhood memories- the church re-enactments were fun, I just had the tendency to take it too far.
