THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 250

Mementos

When I got home,
I dragged the archives
out of my closet
and systematically
destroyed every scrap of paper
that reminded me
of my ex-crush.
The article in the school newspaper
that mentioned his name.
A scribbled picture
of him that I had drawn.
A list of books
I saw him reading.
A poem I had written
about him.
Even a dried-up old pen
that I had let him borrow
in driver’s ed.
All of that…
and we never even
had a relationship.
And we never would.
I had more mementos
of my ex-crush
than I did of Gary.
