Joven poeta, educador y activista, Malcom Londres declama su agitado poema sobre la vida en el frente de batalla de la escuela preparatoria. Habla de los "océanos de adolescentes" que acuden a la escuela "pero nunca aprenden a nadar", de la "masculinidad imitada de hombres que crecieron sin padres". Hermoso, lírico y escalofriante.
