LUNCH AT MY DESK
(1/7/12)


crumbs
and dumbs
sticky
and stale

papers
soiled
and stuck
mired
in the mindless
muck

unsanitary
probably true
but productivity
remains paramount
through and
through

churning
and burning
body fat
and info-calories
so fleeting

work wound
tight
around eating
breathing
and being

job
and vital
organs
entwined
in diurnal
digestion

pick up
the phone
peristalsis
begins

send
an email
defecation
appends

my chosen career
laughs
at my bodily
functions

my body
can only fart
in reply
