HIGH SCHOOL SECOND PLACE Lunchroom
There’s the group that sits at the long table,
the one that stretches from wall to wall.
Where all the kids my age
(every single one) sit
Earlier in the day, I saw them in classes
or passed them in halls
Maybe I looked at them,
and wondered if they noticed me, maybe
something clicked that day, maybe
they waved at me and smiled.
All I know is that now
