Miah Cerrillo, 11, told U.S. lawmakers how she tried                                                         
        to save her own life after the gunman shot a friend next to        
        her, saying, “I got the blood and put it all over me.”

Hiding under shaky plywood desks
No bomb would dare disintegrate  

More worried about Maxie Jenkins
Staring up our dresses than the Russians  

Agonizing our mothers’ anger for smudging
The bleached panties with the dirty floor  

Fearful the chewed gum under the desks
Would filter into our curled hair  

The only blood
A skinned knee at recess
