in the dream
i had last night
i found myself
in charge
of a crime scene
in a large, corner-
suite office
in new york city

feeling insecure
i barked:
“clear the entire floor
and i want the file
of every employee
fired in the last
12 months
on my desk
by 8am tomorrow!”

as they filed out
i snickered
at the fools
knowing damn well
i won’t be reading
no fucking report¬†‚Äč
