“Why are you ignoring me?” I asked him.
Bluntness might work.
“What did I do?”
I might as well have been invisible,
but I didn’t move from my place
next to him.
The guest speakers came in
and started speaking.
They showed a video, but it was black and white,
without the gore we’d been so worried about.
Most of the talk flew right over my head
because I was too busy
worrying about Gary and
scanning my mental archives.
