Spoken Word Korner

Found a job, eight months on...

Here I find my self
in a public apparatus
the kreative gravy train long discontinued
Get a visitor badge at security
wait for an escort
come find me -- five cubes east, three south
where "hump day" is bandied and
denim days are the coin of the realm
I am not sorry the old ways are gone
the universe unfolds as it should as
I am reminded on the freight elevator
in the state office tower dedicated
by a plaque in the lobby
As long I can ride it each day and
help a functionary carry out a business process
every so often I'm happy for now
--Chris Peebles
