Drabble: Doubtful Authorship

Doubtful Authorship

“Professor, do you have a few minutes?”

“It’s a huge honor to be able to take your class. Blue Damselfly changed my life.”

“Thank you.”

“But that scene at the end, where the narrator shares his lunch with the water-carrier – what did you mean that to represent?

“What did it mean to you?”

He went off on some elaborate socio-economic explaination.

“Interesting interperetation. I have to get to the office, but I’d love to talk more later.”

What would the writer in my basement say to the theory? If I untied and ungagged him, that is.
