Something more

Standard

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 🙂

Something more

 

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.
