“Just Another Night” – Matthew Mogavero

It was just another night out at a restaurant. Rudy talking to Bill, Bill with his mouth open and eyes scanning the interior.

I watched them for only a few minutes from across the table…

I reached down under the table where the dog was lying on the floor. I lifted my sleeve and watched the dog eat the meat from my hands, and then my arms. I turned my arm slowly so no good parts were missed.
