Working Holiday


Sirens down below

Blaring AC exhaust above me

Glass window showing the world

Trapped in glass

Hoping for the occasional passerby

Not a soul on this floor

Alone and working

Workplace loneliness for the holidays

Just typing away at a keyboard

Writing this instead of work

Better things for any artist to do

More constructive use of time

The work will still be there tomorrow

The job I can lose

My soul dies with my art

Keep alive at all cost

Alone in a bright room with no distractions

I found my blissful place

Hidden in my misery and disappointment

Writing will get done today
