the spy

The spy holds a slide to the light.
The slide is a distraction. In the slide
his son plays by a pool as his wife looks on.

The spy pours a shot and drinks it.
He looks at himself in the mirror.
He thinks, "There is only so much

The spy is the best spy in the world.
He thinks of it as doing his job.
His family is asleep.
He puts the liquor away.
He looks at the slide again.
He remembers the day he took it.
