“Open your textbooks to page 572, class.â€?
Mrs. Brown said when she was subbing for our usual teacher, Mrs. Young.
I hate math,
it’s like the clock freezes for hours before it starts up again, but only in this class it happens.

I went home and decided to go for a walk.
Instead of going around the block,
I wanted to go around the city.
