Marg pecks at the inconsequential


you must always write the file number
because taking a minute to look it up later
is just dreadful

you must always mail the letters this evening
because mailing them tomorrow morning
is just dreadful

you must always keep the stapler out in the open
because to reach behind the computer for it
is just dreadful

how is it, my love, that this maddening quality
which puts deep teeth marks in my tongue
when it shows itself in other people
is plainly laughable in you?

Probably because you can just laugh at me when I put things back. Also, I'm not your co-worker. :)
