THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 143


I spent my time
trying not think of guys at all.
I thought of what Liz always said
about guys.
(“They’re nothing but trouble.
All they ever want is sex.”)
That made me think
of the first awkward words
Gary ever said to me.
(“I like to fuck, too.”)
But maybe he wasn’t talking to me.
Maybe he was saying that to them.
Those other guys.
“That’s all they ever talk about,”
Liz said another time. “Sex and girls.”
I tried to forget about guys
and focus on geometry instead.
I was in serious danger of failing
that stupid class.
