THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 70


The two on either side of me
immediately responded.
I tried to defend him, but my
words were lost
in the torrent of their abuse,
now directed at me.
The guy I tried to defend
turned back to me and said,
“My name’s Gary.”
He gave that same
I-like-to-fuck grin,
and I tried to decide whether
he was a real pervert or
just socially awkward.
Then he said,
“I was only trying
to speak their language,
make conversation, but why bother?
They’re assholes anyway, right?”
I had no choice but to nod.
It’s the truth.
