"I did not Visit Faculty That Day"

I did not visit institution that day
It became bloodless, autumn,
Grey Missouri skies.
I recollect counting leaves
At the porch wherein I sat.
I did not visit institution that day...

In a daze I watched
The wind blow away
My items of consideration.
My affection for counting
Tired, I waited.
I did not visit institution that day...

I'm able to nonetheless take into account that the instant
Vividly, yet a dream each of the identical.
Each and every element, even that tree
I used to climb earlier than then
Yet not more, I waited.
I did not visit institution that day...

The house I knew
Now not the similar.
The innocence of youngster
Long past with no hint.
There I sat, patiently
With the realm crashing over me.
I did not visit institution that day...

I used to be sitting at the motor vehicle
Once they ultimately got here.
I do not count tears,
I do not recall feeling anything else.
However like a photograph engrained,
That one element stays.
I did not visit institution that day,
The day they took my molester away.

-D.A. Baker
