Steven D. Schroeder On Paper I'm Not as Scared as I Seem

Geography of office wall seams defaced
by boxcutters. A box the size of Colorado
locks inside a chest the size of mine.

The data-mines free of demons except
excessive drinking. At lunch, I drink
the ink from obsolescent resumes.

Tuesday afternoon resumes its promise
of return on churn. In turns, interns
restrain and retrain me with semicolons.

A colonoscopy video will not show
how to perform your own work for cheap.
To tabulate the sheep I need to nap
on the job, I plot my bleats on graph paper.
