The Three Musketeers of the Accounts Department by John Grey

James,

I’m glad to hear you’ve found something.

I really am.


Same with you, Chris.

The pay’s not great

but it could lead to something.


Despite the company closing,

you’ve both landed on your feet.


And here’s me,

still sending out resumes,

knocking on doors,

listening to apathetic secretaries say,

“We’re going with someone else.”


In the meantime,

why don’t we get together?

Now, while we still know how.


John Grey is an Australian poet, US resident. Recently published in That, Muse, Poetry East and North Dakota Quarterly with work upcoming in South Florida Poetry Journal, Hawaii Review and the Dunes Review.
