Finding Meaning Inside Air

Why we cry in corners

Inside the classroom, the air is descending

The clock is ticking in countdown

It’s just a drill today, the intercom blasts


I walk briskly to the desk

Snatching up the keyboard

Looking for the key underneath

Where’s the key?

“Are we gonna die, Miss?”
