First Day of School


First Day of School

Alien born,
Late to class,
All eyes beam in my direction,
Air of sharpened pencils and lead,
I cannot breath.

Teacher salutes, extended finger,
Military daycare,
First order, sit in back.
Cumbrous weight,
Caught in a trap.

Face burning red.
Eyesight blurry,
Beings watch my steps,
Surveillance born in scrutiny,
Lasers burn my soul.

Sanctuary!
Appointed little space,
Essence hides behind closed eyes,
Crack! Now awakened,
Follow the dotted line.
