Because she plays with her shadow at recess.
Because she builds cinnamon houses in her head.
Because all her houses are empty.
Because she was born in the valley of crystal meth.
Because she tells me she wants a "god blanket."
Because she thinks orange light is sleepy.
Because she spent two years in first grade and she still can't read.
Because she came to my classroom a month ago.
