Office Work


Work, work, work..

sitting effort,
on a chair
empty screen,
emotive stare

Work, work, work...

slunched shoulders,
side by side
warming ocean,
stolen pride,

Work, work, work...

hey man,
you man,
ant-field flys
pergatory,
promotion,
pitch-fork eyes.

Work, work, work...

college loving,
take me back,
drunk lace orgy,
primrose sack

Work, work, work...

day dream,
day stare,
simple soul.
Drop your complexity
and know,
your,
role.

    I was about to dedicate a poem to the office work, but you already did it in your unique eloquent manner (Report) Reply

    A train of thought that escapes the confines of the office before being briefly halted by a burst of 'work work work' - the repitition of which contrasts with the superb imagery of the daydreams that interject the monotony. 'pitch fork eyes' - is just one image that leapt from the page. So glad I escaped office life when I did! A superb write David. j x (Report) Reply

    David, do I know what you mean. It can be a bit soul destroying at times and you wish you were somewhere else. Top marks and thanks for reminding me my friend.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
