Acronyms drop from
The lips of the consultants
Like cherry blossoms.
A PowerPoint slide show and
Au Bon Pain cookies.
A cell phone shrills and
Hands rummage through briefcases:
Who is it? Me? Me?
The speaker drones on.
We listen, but think of what?
Food. TV. Sex. Sex.
Symphony at six
When all the cube farm dwellers
Sync their Palm Pilots.
Team meeting at eight a.m.-
No bagels ordered.
