The Reader


She hides behind her books
of faraway places
While sitting in geometry
She can travel to
the future
the past
A slap of the ruler
brings her back to the present
Next period
she dines with thieves
her blade crosses pirate's treasure
She realizes
she'll have to keep her head down
to remain anonymous
So
she slips Don Quixote
behind Civil Disobedience
But the teacher
slips detention
between her
and her books.
But she always has an extra in her pocket.
