he’ll have to fix this soon

he starts at 9
he’s there, on time,
he gets a little work done
office-691508_960_720but then he takes
a coffee break
his boss finds
fully irksome
his break takes
40 minutes
then he hangs at
connie’s desk
to talk about
his weekend
which was always
kafka-esque
he kills his mornings
every day
in pretty much
the selfsame way
just like his
afternoons
no one wants to
tell him that
he’ll have to
fix this soon
he’s in a rut
of his own
complacence
and his boss
is losing
patience
