she touched him,
put her hand
on his shoulder
to give him a push
make him move faster

but she didn't even look at me.

i swore at her,
words she probably
didn't hear
words i hope she
didn't hear

"fucking bitch."

keygan caught up with me
halfway to the middle school
and asked me why i ran off so fast.

and for the millionth time, it feels,
the tears filled in my eyes and i
was going to cry.

in front of keygan.
