THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 114

Tracks

I pondered that for a moment.
It is true.
How does a high schooler know
what life will be like?
They give us paper forms
and say,
“Pick your track.”
(1) From high school straight to work.
(2) From high school to community college.
(3) From high school to university.
The unspoken message is
Do not change your track. Stick with it.
Are we not allowed to change our minds?
“Can I see your translation?” Gary asked,
and for a moment, I had no idea what he was
talking about, but then I remembered,
opened my backpack,
and let him read it.
