I eat delicious though corporate food
with noise
and among us there are five men in striped dress shirts
no tie
saying words to each other like
“Chaos Creates Opportunity”
“The Fog of War”
“Horizon” with “Them Focused”
and I value them
because they are paid more
and they are talking to each other
and Money
and they are not talking to each other.
And I
catching my own gaze in the window glass
am talking to no one.
