365 Poems in 365 Days: Overhearing

Conversation overheard
Because they’re shouting every word
It’s taken an odd turn
That’s not something I want to learn

Number 266 introduces this classroom task from creative writing on the topic of overhearing or eavesdropping.

What's that on your hand?
Nothing
No, what is it?
It's a map of Ireland I drew during maths. That's Killkenny.
No the other hand.
Oh, it's the magic ring from when we dug up the treasure chest yesterday.
It's magic? What does it do?
I don't know.
So how do you know it's magic?
I just do. It's better than the necklace John found. He gave it to Mel and it was all pink and purple, and she just looked really stupid.
