“1040AM” (Poetry)

amelia phoenix desertsong

“1040am”  is a poem about a gloomy Monday morning at the office.

Caramel coffee starts the day
Tobacco n’ smoke rings on break
Meaningless banter is exchanged
On a gloomy Monday morning

He has a stomach full of grease
And a heart lacking affection
For all his fellows, the poor souls
Live only on coffee and cigs

Total lack of inspiration
No int’rest in conversation
He spills into solemn evenings
Without anything in his mind

Instead of poison tobacco
Could use a lil bit of small talk
But alas, there’s no substitute
For creamy caramel coffee
