The Day My Ego Popped

 

I was feeling self-assured so I told Brianna Peppers of how everyone knew my name

“But you see,” she said as she kicked at a lizard in the high school’s grassy knoll

“All of those people who you think are your friends are merely patronizing you”

And though I now would rather be patronized than completely neglected by them

On that dreary high school day, I forgot about the guy who sat with me on the field trip’s bus

And began distorting every pleasant memory into suffering.
