It’s Too Quiet

I am still at school and it’s too quiet.

I wonder why I didn’t head home
to enjoy this spring-like weather.
Tomorrow will be cold again.
After all, it’s winter.

I hear the annoying buzz of my laptop.
It has been buzzing since I dropped it.
Twice.
Shhhhh…don’t tell.

I see not a soul pass my classroom door.
Not one friendly face.
Everyone has gone.
The urgency of the school day is not there.

I feel the annoying vibrations of my laptop.
It reminds me that I dropped it.
Twice.
Shhhhh…don’t tell.

I want to head home…
but the house is empty.
So why hurry?
I’m writing.

I am still at school and it’s too quiet.
