THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 158


A week passed,
and contrary to some rumors,
we had not broken up.
It seemed like they were waiting
for us to end, though.
They perched like vultures
(or gargoyles),
hunched behind locker doors,
under stairwells,
hissing at us.
It wore on me, but Gary
did not let me listen to them.
One day, he handed me a note
that made everything better.
In the most beautiful handwriting
I had ever seen, it said:
I dream of you always
even when I don’t dream.

Suddenly, the vultures turned
to doves, my heartbeat slowed
to calmness,
and I could breathe again.
