A weird deal,
no number or address,
just a street name.
I thought we had it sealed,
until another guy barreled in and started taking some.
We scurried and got as many bricks as fast as we could.
We still got 2/3 the pile,
while also learning a little business lesson.
We missed these,
probably taken by the same guy!
That wasn't the plan.
The rain had helped soften up the hardpack,
and it was hard to stop.
Jaxon was the master chipper,
hammering off the cement.
Jakob smoothed the dirt out.
A finely tuned machine.
The right row of bricks was removed,
any extra dirt was sifted and spread out,
and now it's an inch or more higher,
as it sloped down.
but the visual from the alley looks clean,
instead of a never ending project.
