black blue

Its cold today
Her arms are bare
an easy issue
Initial thoughts of the morning
something catches my eye
my heart pulls
A closer look
blue black marks on both arms
alarm and sadness
visit the nurse
phone call home
A donated sweater
address the easier issue first
Hours later
irate parent
crumpled sweater
tossed violently
fit of rage
black and blue arms remain
ushered outside
sweaterless, now coatless
dragged to the cold
easier issue or not
