THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 310

Strips

I tried to force myself
to fold the note neatly
and put it away,
so it could go into the archives
later.
I could not bring myself
to put it away, so I unfolded it
and read it until I
had it memorized.
Then I tore it up
into long strips,
opened the bus window,
and fed the strips
into the breeze
one by one.
No more boyfriend.
I didn’t need him
—didn’t choose him.

I knew I would regret
not saving the note,
but the satisfaction
of seeing Gary’s words
fly away from me
was far too great.
