Mutual Agreement

Finish a small project, and pleased with myself step outside for a celebratory cigarette.
Inhale deeply, and adjust myself. 
Perhaps too aggressively. 
Too late I look around and lock eyes with a pair of teenagers in the neighbor basement stairs.
They are smoking,
hiding from the school.
I exhale and continue with my adjustment.
Who are they going to tell?

    No, school will get you nowhere in life. It's just a giant babysitting corporation.

  6. I like the title, it brings the point at the end together. A silent agreement to keep each others secret. Very nicely done.

  11. So when you say you adjusted yourself too aggressively, does that mean you hurt yourself or was it just too obvious?

    Just one of the many thoughts that come from such a short but sweet post.

    I used to be that kid smoking, hiding from school.

  12. Dumb kids. Hopefully they are filled with regret when they are sitting in a homeless shelter looking at all the kids they thought were nerds drive by laughing in their BMW
