SALES SEWER
(6/16/11)


the last
few months
have not
been kind
to our company's
efforts

difficult
to understand
when everyone else
seems to be
sloping up
the revenue
curve

if
I invest
anymore time
at my desk
my wife
will leave
me

brain numb
I spin
the idea wheel
looking
for a winner

not
the position
in which
I envisioned
myself
30 years
or so
ago

where's
the villa?

the beach?

the sun
drenched
sands?

no doubt
buried beneath
that batshit
live for today
mentality
of my 20s
and 30s

imbibed
youth
now drying
on a crucifix
of aging
reality

I hang
in the
sun

suffering
only slightly

business
dwindling
I can't
help
but smile

the remaining
insanity
saves me
from my
plight

sand
is always
sand
