Musings of Mudora – VI: Arcana

fool

I am the Fool. I blend into the crowds. In high school I spent my lunches and spare periods playing cards in the cafeteria, gaming in the computer lab and hanging out with the smokers in the parking lot. Each area belonged to a certain type of crowd. I was welcomed into each but belonged to none. After school I played basketball or drums in the band. I waited for Mark to finish his shift in the grocery department and held Amy’s bags as she shopped for clothes. In the evenings I watched game shows with my little cousin and discussed the news with my uncle. I remember, one afternoon, during the shuffling between classes, I was stopped by Spencer, one of my school’s notorious “tough-guys”. For a moment he just stared at me, saying nothing.
