A Government Office

A Government Office BY NDREK GJINI The carpet here is tired and worn as my neighbor’s old winter coat. The dead legs of the officer’s desk like four exclamation marks (!!!!)

Over the desk; the mask is never lifted. https://ndrekgjini.com/2015/07/11/ndrek-gjini-the-death-of-night/
