four-dimensional roots twisted knotted
and the door is 10 steps too far
the outside months of layoff
have confined me to this building
and the air i breathe is up on
the slopes of autumnís damped

clogged
in the gutters
of putrid backed up sewers
in our hollow halls
the punching sounds of the man next door on his wife
-i hear those at night in the shower sometimes
when it echoes through the elevators

t.v. dinners have posted notes
monday-thru-friday
sorting my life,
the fear of inevitable days
revenging lazy nights,
programmed tv channels
they know my favorites
welcoming me with open arms

the twisted beams of lights
hot cringes on skin
my couch now lumpy-bunched,
is conformed to my presence
