In the middle of a fight

“Yes, I’m here to cancel my gym membership
and it’s ridiculous,
i lost my job last year
and then got another one
with a free gym membership
but you should know
im still on food stamps
im struggling

i feel like this is extortion
that you won’t let me out of the contract
i need to speak with the manager
or better yet, the owner.
I’ll pay what I owe
but this is where it ends
or else ill slander your name
to everyone in Salem.”

Then, I get a message
from her, from Korea,
making fun of me and Cambodia
all in one sentence
with pictures included
and I can’t help it,
I start giggling
and step outside
to continue the more fun
conversation

“This is the owner.”
“Yeah, just…” i laugh,
“Excuse me for a moment.”
