There Is A Girl In The Office

Feel­ing cyn­ical today.


 

There is a girl in the office
Who wants to be famous.

 

She has a yel­low poster on her wall
Telling her to do better.

 

She has dis­cus­sions with import­ant
Men. And wears a tight beige skirt.

 

She doesn’t smile at me. But
There are pos­sum droppings

 

Lit­ter­ing the hall­way by her door
Like black beetles.

 

And the sun cracks its knuckles
Against the roof hour by hour.

 

And the ceil­ing fans do noth­ing
And dead ants lie in lines

 

In the staff kitchen.
