THE END
(8/9/19)


strange
to see them
go

years

decades worth
of relationships

perhaps
never
to be seen
again

they
will go
on

to other
jobs

to other
responsibilities

one maybe
to retirement

I alone
remain

a caretaker

a witness
to the death
throes
of a dying
company

sitting
alone
in these offices

wondering
what will happen
to me

once
I turn in
the key

after closing
the door
for the
last time
