the caretaker

irrelevant, yet

as necessary as
a shredder, or
a coffee maker

being polite, you refer
to him as “uncle”
only because you

don’t know his name
and you don’t care to

after all, he is not
a part of the work
you do

until something left
on the desk last night
goes missing the next morning
