More Than What You See: My Imagination

For years my imagination
and emotions were my only
bridge to understanding words
and sentences.

But one time in fifth grade
my imagination became helpful for once
when a boy sitting next to me
asked the teacher
for a calculator.

He answered,
“Use the calculator
attached to your spine
between your ears
and behind your eyes.”

I leaned over
placing my hand
to cover my lips
from the teachers view
and whispered,
“Your brain…
your brain”

I began to giggle
halfway through
as the teacher’s
laughter rang
in my ears.

The boy was still
confused. I guess
he couldn’t see the dots
and connect them
like my imagination could.
