probation officer, by wayne f burke

she went out to the club, got
drunk, blacked-out and
came-to in her bed
lying beside a guy,
wearing an ankle bracelet,
whom she did not recognize–
he said his name was Fred
or Ed or Ned
and after getting up
out of bed
and smoking a cigarette, she
cooked some eggs
but there was no time to eat
because
Fred or Ned or Ed
needed a ride
to go
meet
his P.O.
