Enemies Are Taken Care Of?

by Jerry Ratch


A waiter at the café was saying

“I'm opening the curtain here behind your back

Is that okay?”


“Go ahead,” I told him. “It's all right”


“Enemies are taken care of?”


“They already got everything,” I said


Suddenly both of us were laughing


“Yeah,” said the waiter

“I know that feeling, all right”
