A Quick Note About Where I Work

No one smiles in the skyways--

though I suspect they are communicating

happiness and hope,

“I love you’s” through text messages

that sweeten blackberries,

make iPhones about the “me’s”

under the fancy clothes

we woke up early to iron--

the tie that weighs heavy in the afternoon

or until coffee is gulped

(or until the girl with coffee-colored hair

notices it).

A story above the sidewalk,

it’s too easy to sink into

a place where stories don’t live.
