De jonge dichter, pedagoog en activist Malcolm London draagt zijn roerende gedicht voor over het leven aan de frontlinies van de highschool. Hij vertelt over de 'oceanen van adolescenten', die naar school gaan 'maar nooit leren zwemmen', van 'mannelijkheid die nagebootst wordt door mannen die opgroeiden zonder vader'. Prachtig, lyrisch en verontrustend.
