THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 139

V-Day

Valentine’s Day
is a huge popularity contest
that I’ve never won
and never wanted to win.
But that year, I hit the jackpot.
Everyone sent me things.
Roses, cards, chocolate, stuffed animals.
Is this a joke?
But no. Attached to every one
was a tiny card:
“For the Archivist”
I eventually had so many things,
I had to give them away.
Liz got most of the stuffed animals
because she didn’t get a single thing
from anyone.
I even shoved the long stems of three roses
(red, white, and pink)
into the slats of my crush’s locker.
