this
is how offices look best-

 

after a commercial move

 

gutted

 

chairs still-
facing in no particular direction.
plugs yanked-
bookcases enptied out-
pcs labeled no good-
partitions unfastened and
carted away

 

just the sound of the air condition
and the
constant motion of the city about

 

no conference calls-
no throbbing of heads from
lack of blood flow to
the brain

 

reems of paper
unfurled
in dusty copy rooms

 

coffee cups spilt over with
a stain now dry

 

a decent football game could
now be played on
this vacant floor

 

i can hear them scoring now
in the emptiness

 

and across the long floor
lights go out-
one
by
one

 

all except the
EXIT signs-
which act as a
WARNING-
a reminder-
for any thing that
might have
been left
behind
