THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 216

Church

I tried to put
the whole incident
out of my mind,
but I still kept seeing
my ex-crush’s
pleading eyes.
After Gary walked
me to class,
I didn’t go in.
I wandered around
the school until I was late.
Near the band room
was an advertisement
for a local church
that held services
in the school
on weekends.
Christian rock music!
Coffee and doughnuts after service!
Register to be baptized
into our faith community!

How weird would it be
to be baptized
in a school?
Especially a high school
tattooed with rude graffiti?
But everyone says God
is everywhere…
even here.
