Work Boots And Garden Dirt

Each of the three men picked a leaf of arugula and chewed it slowly as they talked, letting the green bitterness work its way around their tongues.

“The kings are coming.”

“I heard they caught one down by Gig Harbor.”

“When?”

“Yesterday I think.”

“Well it’s time. I haven’t gotten anything yet this year.”

“I’ll have to go out there. Maybe tomorrow. I’ve got to finish that fence up before I do anything.”

“And that tree that’s down.”

“Well, first one to get a king gets a day off.”

For a while, they looked out at the sound without talking.
