THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 198

Gary’s House

I arrived at Gary’s house
for the party.
All the windows are circular,
the walls covered
with dormant wisteria.
It is not far from our school.
As a matter of fact,
I could see our school
from his house.
One light inside the band room
was on, winking at me.
Before I walked up the steps,
Gary rushed out the door
and threw his arms around me.
“For a minute there,
I didn’t think you’d show up,”
he whispered against my neck.
I smiled,
my lips free of gloss.
I hadn’t dressed up
and he didn’t care.
