The New Job

Everybody had photos in their cubicles, of loved ones, pets, and friends.
Having none of the above I cut out an old magazine picture of Courtney Love and put it
in a cheap plastic frame. She looked great in this smokey live concert shot.
Her hair whacked-out, lipstick badly smeared, cigarette upthrust like FDR,
and mayhem in her eyes. She had ripped the broken-strapped tacky sequin bra
far from one shoulder, slick with sweat her bare breast exposed, nipple defiant.
The department supervisor made his courtesy visit, saw the photo,and conversationally inquired , “So, ah… is that the Mrs.?”
