Poem A Day: Day Five, Poem 2

This is my second offering for tonight. It's weaker, I think, but it is a response to the first poem, posted here:

This is also a TMI poem, because there are many times when teachers see more of their students' lives than they bargained for.

They Think I Don’t See

Stolen pencil
Paper plane
Love note passing
Red shoe lace
Meth mouth
Dope eyes
Straight-edge razor
Insect bites
Cut marks
Tear streaks
Moon-shaped scar
Cell phone texting
Boyfriend’s car
Sneaking out
Freaking out
Taking something
Way too far.
They think
I don’t see them.
They think I don’t

But I do.
