TIER 2 LIMBO
(7/29/16)


I know
that I'm in trouble
when the troubleshooters
cannot help

their tone
of deference
quickly turns
to one
of disgust

they make
me
feel dirty

damaged

my case
must be
escalated
they say

as if
they couldn't
be rid
of my kind
soon enough

my facts
are submitted

I shall
be contacted
in due
time

but those
upper level
folks
are patient

they have
no reason
to hurry

in the interim
I question
my competence

my worthiness

as I wait
for superior
beings
to determine
my fate
