MOOD LIGHTING
(10/8/17)

our employees
are picky
these days

"it's too bright!"

they say

so we remove
fluorescent tubes

have electricians
disable
entire banks
of lights

showing
some sensitivity
for our workers
optical
hypersensitivity

they now
labor mostly
in the shadows

the only
well lit areas
are uninhabited

our visitors
however

like moths

are naturally
attracted
to the light

"hello?

hello?"

they'll ask
in echo

as everyone
sits

in silence

as well as
in the dark
