ALL BUSINESS
(1/20/14)


it's nice
to roll into
the office
at 6am
and have
a plan
for the day

and for once
have the gods
allow
this plan
to happen

all sense
of time
is lost
as I launch
into
my anticipated
routine

the information
is flowing
and all sorts
of disparate data
begins
to come together

I am on
a vocational
high

before
I realize
it's 8am
and the others
are begrudgingly
arriving

interrupting
my rhythm

there are
greetings

questions

stories
to tell

the phones
begin
to ring

the magic
is gone

I walk
down the hall
for my first
cup of coffee
of the day

if it weren't
for coworkers
and customers

I'd get
so much
work done
around here
