Here’s a poem I wrote recently… it seems fitting for a Friday, for those of you who may also be tired from another long week in the corporate world 🙂
Give me anything but this:
dry humming aircon
with redistributed germs
and a stale smell that hangs
between the walls and the tightly shut windows.
Give me something more than this –
this tiny cubicle
with the blankness of a desk
asking for work
and bearing paper burdens
Oh, please! Give me something more:
get me far beyond the city,
the concrete and the brickwork.
Get me out where my spirit
paints the world as a canvas wide
and leaps to the height of the cirrus
in exuberance at being alive.
