THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 338

Inquiry

The guidance counselor
brought me back to my school.
The filthy halls
branded with graffiti
felt even more like home to me
than they had been before.
Students I did not know
demanded that I reveal the secrets
of West Campus.
I remained mute as the guidance counselor
ushered me into her office
to inquire about Lindsey.
“Were you happy to see that she’s doing better?”
“Yes,” I lied.
“How did you like West Campus?”
“It was nice,” I lied.
“Good. You might have heard
that the superintendent
wants to turn it into a regular high school
to alleviate some of the overcrowding here.”
Oh, no. I would never go there.
