Flash 55 Friday

Ninth Grade

Long fingers drumming
eyes darting, a beep of a horn
the screen door slams. I remember
your first day, the smile of relief
talking with your friends. Juggling classes,
and social mazes. Homecoming dance,
Curling club, Driver's Ed. First report
card, smiles and satisfaction.
Freshman year gone in a flash.
No longer the underdog.
