Writing Poems at Work

Mostly I write them
in a spread sheet

and cut and paste
them into an email

then cut and paste them
into a word document at home

but sometimes I write them
right onto my to-do list

typing in my ridiculous cube
flagrantly stealing time

and banking on the person
looking over my shoulder

to have never read a poem
or recognize a couplet.
