September 16, 2016, Prescott-
One child, jealous of another getting the attention
that he, himself, had been getting,
just two minutes before,
took off his shoe and tossed it,
in an arc, towards an empty space,
in the back of the room.
He then flung his food bag,
towards yet another child.
The student who was the focus of teacher’s attention
deflected the bag, away from student # 3,
and no harm was done.
Child doing the throwing
now faces a weekend
of confinement to his room.
There is no daylight,
home and school are tight.
