6th Floor

The office mammals wrestle
over the copier
while the phone rings
endlessly in the
cavern of cubes.

How can an artist
live in this jungle?

The pigs and bears laugh
at such a silly
thought, amused.

I admit I didn't read all posts but in last few I like how you represent your thoughts through rhyme.. Did you consider to put on the end, after the poem, just one line with a question that bothers you the most that day?
Would help maybe, specially if it would be somehow connected with a poem..

I laughed out loud at this quirky post. I used to imagine the people in the office as animals too. Nice sense of humor and great photo to illustrate it.

I am commenting on your newest post because it's your newest post.
First time here, truly beautiful prose, drawing pictures and transferring feelings with words. Really good. Don't stop.

Great poem! You should read Douglas Coupland's JPOD for an answer to your question.

Artists are like roaches, we thrive everywhere!!!

Wow - anger, denial, sadness, pain not to mention love - are often the wells from which fantastic art surface; your poetry and prose are no exception, and hopefully therapeutic too. I cannot imagine.

I love "6th floor" hillarious, so true!
