The opposite end of the exchange

A woman left twenty dollars
in the room she had stayed
the previous night,
for me,
the housekeeper
as a welcomed tip
along with a note scribbled
‘jesus loves you’

I smiled when I saw.
Not because I felt the divine love,
not because of her kind message,
not even because she was more than generous.

I smiled because
I am an atheist
and was in need of drug money.
