Every monday morning I walk with longing
towards my 9am meeting
your peach painted nails pick cups at the water cooler
as I peer through the holes in my mdf walls.
Coffee break! Red bites of donut, cinamon-spiced, sugar-lipped,
oh to be the sugar coating on your morning snack.
you pencil cryptic squiggles, your face illuminated by the photocopier glow.
your arms shimmer with the incandescent yellow of low watt strobes.
I long to sit and share a sandwich. head bobs and corridor greetings no longer satisfy.
your stiletto heels tap tap away,
you vanish with my heart each 5.30 sunset. your colourful Post-Its- the only tangible momento.
your pink perfume hangs in the air.
