Dogs 2010

FIRST CIRCLE
(11/8/10)


Monday

four
meetings

half
the day
hammered
and nailed
on a cross
of corporate
dysfunction

edicts
policy
reports
opinions
projectors
projections
projectionists
and much
too much
coffee

all this
venality
vitiates my
poetic soul
but there are
bills to pay
and no one
to pay me
for my less
than classic
lines

however
I can play
with the most
supercilious
and soulless
of them

it's just
another
philosophical
exercise
after all

I can
suggest
criticize
compromise
or ridicule
my weight
with any
uppity
MBA

I don't
really
have to
care

I know
that there's
something
wrong
with this
mentality
but
I'm no
trailblazer

simply
a technician

I wonder
if the majority
of Nazi's
felt this
way?

the thought
will bother me
tonight
but I will
still
sleep
soundly

tomorrow
my world
will be back
to only me
and the digital
denizens
of my database
habitat

not quite
the mid-management
Mephistopheles
morphed today

but never
the lettered
saint
sensed
in my dreams
