One Poem by Kaiden Ciongoli

I Remember This One Time I Went to Speak with My Boss in the Cooler Because We Needed to Give Out Gift Cards Because We Did Such a Shit Job Getting Chicken out on Time and She Said

“What else could I give to those fucking vultures, my job?”
and she was fired that same week
