attending to the stall

he was a small fellow,
couldn’t have stood more
than 5 feet, and weighed
no more than 90 lbs.

he stayed at the hotel i was managing.
every week, he paid with cash,
curious guy; something was obvious
wrong with him.

one day, i asked him what he did
for a living;
he was the bathroom attendant
at the local strip club.

interesting gig. i wonder if he tagged
any of those girls…ha!
naw, he didn’t. Just a funny thought is all…

at least, they told me they didn’t…
sneaky bastard.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
