Big Inca

To: The Boss

From: Bill

Date: July 1

Mona and Paul returned tired, quiet, softened. Mostly, they hinted of the weariness of warfare.

Mrs. Waterford is a Celt. She has turned her venom on Paul, who had put his bicycle on the porch; he had moved it there from the hallway, after she had complained. Now she’s telling him, “Well, it shouldn’t be there or on the porch … keep it by your van or on the fence … My friends come by the front door,” which is a lie – she always uses the side door – “The landlord said you had to move it,” which is another lie, “and keep the door shut. The landlord don’t want the dogs and cats to piss on ’em.”

Later, discovering she had lost legal custody of Connie: “Well, don’t be surprised if you get the clap.”

Connie’s wearing red high-heeled fake snakeskin shoes. I’ve hired her to work at Ghost Horse Transit, one of our new operations.

Hank in the slot at work is another Randy. The lawyers really are up to something.

Connie believes her mother is a sometimes whore.
