THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 238

Free Hour

During free hour in P.E.,
I grabbed a basketball
before they were all taken
and shot hoop after hoop
by myself.
The ball slammed the backboard
with all the frustration inside me.
Swish. Swish. Swish.
“You should have tried out
for the basketball team,”
came the unmistakable voice
of my ex-crush.
He was perched on the bleachers,
a book open over his knees.
Don’t tell me what I should have done.
Don’t tell me what I am.

I stomped up the bleachers
and plunked down beside him.
“That key around your girlfriend’s neck.
What’s it for?”
