THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 145


If you really think about it,
an envelope contains
thousands of possibilities.
Although it’s small and made
of flimsy paper, it’s strong enough
to hold a letter
full of heavy feelings.
Or a small trinket,
a lock of a child’s hair,
or some rose petals
sprayed with a dash of perfume.
One possibility
kept throwing itself into my mind.
Gary. Gary.
I had to fill the envelope with something
for Gary.
No. I didn’t have to.
I wanted to.
Even if I was not sure I liked him,
I felt like the envelope
was for him.
