Burke

Burke stood in the middle of a long row of tobacco plants and handled one of the leaves, rubbing it between his fingers, humming his approval. Matt Blanc, his head worker, stood nearby, nervously waiting to hear what Burke had to say. Matt was in his early thirties, tall and stout, with sandy blonde hair always scooped up under the John Deere Tractor ball cap he perpetually wore. Burke couldn’t remember the last time he’d seen Matt without his hat. He turned the leaf over in his hand, chewed on his bottom lip, and smiled.

“Looks good,” he said. The look of relief that spread across Matt’s face brought sunshine to the world.

“Thank you, sir,” Matt said.

“Don’t call me ‘sir,’ goddammit,” Burke said. “You been working for me for what, six years now? I think we’re on better footing than all that ‘sir’ business.”

“Yes, sir,” Matt said. He laughed. “Sorry. It’s just a force of habit.”
