THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 175

Ganging Up

At lunch time,
I looked out the cafeteria window,
waiting for Gary to cross the courtyard below.
I did not see him in the blur of students.
Strangely enough,
monochrome Lindsey
caught my eye again.
Maddy and Amanda
walked on either side of her,
dressed in red,
like cardinals bullying a wren.
Maddy slung her arm
around Lindsey’s shoulders
and Amanda looped her arm
around Lindsey’s waist.
“Lesbians!” someone shouted,
startling me.
Are they ganging up on her?
Or befriending her?
It doesn’t matter… does it?

My thoughts found order
when Gary appeared
and took my hand.
