“These roads don’t
lead to my home,
why are you turning here?”.

“Relax”, he said,
as we pulled onto a dead-end street,
the other side of my middle school.

Hill top he leans over and says,
“your ex was Greek right?
your girlfriend told me,
which means,
you should know what we like.”,
while unzipping his pants
gripping the roots of my hair
palm against my skull.
