Disappointment


I’ve noted your
disappointment
folded the note
Into an origami
rhinoceros
sealed it in an
envelope
labeled it “urgent”
and filed it away
somewhere
In my memory bank

BUT

I’d be happy to
retrieve it
for you tomorrow,
should you
need it again
or should I,
for once,
decide
to give a fuck.

    Have mercy, I couldn’t help but laugh but that is deliciously harsh.
