Chapter 83: School’s Out

In Uncategorized on March 24, 2011 at 3:03 am

I’m back at the school. Not that it’s my school of course, just one where the same thing happened. I’m still not ready to go home. Not yet.

I’m not sure why I came back. There’s nothing to be gained, no closure, no need to remember those who are gone.

When that sort of thing happens, the news always calsl it a “tragedy”. When you actually live through it, there’s never a word that’s adequate.

The school always gets abandoned in the end. Paint peels, paper rots, monkey bars rust.

People rot, too. Even if their images survive, endlessly replayed.
