end of the day……….she wasn’t gonna pay anyhow

i move back away
the blinds
sit down in my office chair

lil fin jumps up
in my

and i grimace
i can’t scold him

scratching the top of

looking out past the glass
need for a secretary


think back on all the events

it’s only been a week
a week
since she first approached me
i tackled him

and then…..

put it all together

lil fin falls asleep on my lap
he doesn’t shed
what the hell i guess
i smirk

i chuckle

and i shake my head

putting it all together
isn’t worth
the pay check
