A Friendly Visit

A Friendly Visit By: Oliver Gomez It’s a beautiful day and the doorbell is ringing. The man at the door says its Bulwark calling. He’s clean-cut, polite and I feel at rest, I know he is knowledgeable and will take care of the pests. He says with all confidence there’s no bug he can’t treat.

He moved away the food and the water we drink. He took off the panels where the wall sockets go,… Read More
