Unforgivable calculations fill the chalkboards.
The daylight leaves the courtyard on bad terms,
and doesn’t plan on returning any time soon.
Silence is the best response to aggressive

from being made.
The buildings that they move between are shaped
like hexagons, and have more windows than walls
on the outside. When it snows it starts to feel like
you’re in an igloo, and when it rains it all just seems
like nothing can touch you.
We got lost once looking for a party.
We were invited, but didn’t know the
area well. I think we wound up just drinking
out of a flask on the sidewalk while we waited
outside the bus station, and she told me that
she thought there would be more.
