ALL ALONE…BUT THE COFFEE MACHINE WORKS!

Coffee is down the hall,

Sure hope I don’t drink it all…

Nobody here

But me. Dear,

I hear my every footfall!

Cooked my burritos and squash,

My Thanksgiving evening panache…

Hallways are quiet

Unlike the riot

In stores soon to take off.

Air handlers I hear,

Every night of the year…

No phone call–

Crank or at all–

To break this atmosphere!

CCTV AND COLD COFFEE

CCTV AND COLD COFFEE

 

Watching them walk down the hall,

Observing every footfall…

When she walks by

He lets out a sigh

With a moment’s look of enthrall.
