this is your tangible achievement.
this is your well-deserved payroll.
this is my digital brother
inches in front of me and miles above me.
words turning shallow constantly now.
it's so easy to marinate in yourself.
did you get paid? did you get a raise?
and now you get fed? congratulations.
here is your smelling salt dinner.
here are the extras you ask for.
here is my unpaid service
offered up freely and catered by envy.
the help here is callow.
earnestly working for you
to marinate in yourself.
but you do pronounce our names right.
so by the way, congratulations.
