THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 212

Don’t Understand

I was hesitant about talking to Lindsey.
For a moment
while we were at Gary’s party,
it seemed like we could be friends.
(If only just for that night…)
I don’t understand her.
I knelt to the floor
and stuffed bits and pieces
of the wounded notebook
into my backpack.
Later,
I saw Lindsey
in the courtyard
talking to my ex-crush.
He held her hand,
but the corners of his mouth
drooped down with apathy.
Gary loped up to them
in his ungainly way,
smiling as usual.
He said something to Lindsey.
She swatted his arm.
Playful?
I couldn’t tell.
