Zero Degrees

An oldie, from my Special Educator days, revised and posted for One Single Impression Prompt # 190 (Paper):

 
Zero Degrees

all the old papery
high school students
fire like st jude
at their temples

creep up in the dark
show me notebooks
walk away smugly
set the world aflame

proud to have mastered
finally the alphabet
the counting beyond ten
their own addresses
