“And the day after”

woke late this morning
no alarm
weather’s nice, looks like fall
put apron on backwards
break fingernail on cooler door
always sticks
should know better
brief excursion outdoors
dump bottles, like responsible employee
last of a dying race
get locked out of restaurant
fuck, I have a trainee today
the one that pulled “dead cousin”
her first week
maybe it’s true
don’t even think I care
anymore
watch the clock
11 hours, and counting
start again tomorrow
