The last time you were drowning

The last time you were drowning,
they came to see to you after school.
You were washing mugs in your classroom sink.
They watched you,
said you were methodical —
a word you associate with supervillains.

Scars in your vision danced on the whiteboard behind their head
when you talked about your week.
