The 3 o’Clock Session with a Know-It-All
Everyone has those moments, he says,
but when I ask if he does, he says,
No, of course not. And I say, I think
I know what, or is it how, an apple
core feels – full of pits and pips,
and stripped of all my good bits,
and he just smiles. Knowingly.
He sits there, and smiles, the way
someone might when they’re paid
too much for what they do, and so
I say, You’re a little bit annoying,
and he says, I know that.
This is pure fiction, just in
case anyone thinks otherwise.
