I found a notebook
(nothing fancy: a plain,
red, wire-bound, college-ruled
From reading it,
I learned its keepers
were two freshman girls
who didn’t think much of their classmates.
Lindsey wore that shirt yesterday. Does that mean
Jason’s so cute.
But did you see how he was picking his nose?
That’s not cute! It’s disgusting!!
The ink they wrote with
(fancy, gel-ink, pink with sparkles
that rubbed off on my fingers)
marked me as the thief,
the new keeper of their notebook.
I wonder if I should write something back, like
Amanda and Maddy aren’t very nice.
