Thanks anyways

“The next step for you will be to get a literary agent.” My teacher says,

“That’s sweet,” I say, guzzling down the beer he bought me

at ten in the morning, “But I haven’t written anything yet.”

“Oh,” he says, “But you’ve written for my class.

You’ve written at least a memoir already.”

I finish the beer while noticing

he’s barely touched his lemonade

“No,” I say, “I haven’t,”

and get my things to leave.
