i think the girl is suicidal because she's going threw puberty and shes got
acne and braces-not to mention shes ignored by her mother.That thought goes
good with the title of "hanging fire" because i get the feeling she's like
two seconds away from killing herself and is thinking these things

I think this poem is about this 14 year old girl who is worried about her
life. I think that she is overthinking her life a little too much. Whenever
it says "momma's in the bedroom with the door closed" I think that means
that her mom is never there for her. I have to resite this poem for my
class tomorrow (April 26, 2010)and it is for a grade...
