Waxing Poetic

Wrote about my day
using Japanese form poems
called Haikus. Have joy.

6:45am
Today's solemn vow:
Kill alarm clock inventor,
mount head on nightstand.

8:17am
Damn! Pressed 'Alarm Off'
instead of snooze button. My
boss is gonna shit.

9:34am
"Sorry I'm late, boss.
Brown Line struck a homeless man.
Don't worry, I'm fine."

9:38am
Coffee pot empty.
Co-workers should be punished.
Will steal their lunches.

11:02am
Company bathroom
is like Spring Break in Cancun
compared to my cube.

1:59pm
"Me? Sleeping at work?
Not in a million years, boss.
Just resting my eyes."

Thinking: 'By the way,
your ugly necktie hurts worse
than my hangover.'

2:46pm
Ninety ceiling tiles
hang above my cubicle.
Clearly working hard.

4:00pm
Only one more hour.
Should start doing some work now.
Naw. I'll just Facebook.

5:00pm
"Would love to stay late.
Prior engagement awaits.
Next time. Sorry boss."

Thinking: 'Going to
bar to drown myself in beer.
Hope you're here all night.'

5:45pm
What'd you say, Full Beer?
You want me to drink you now?
Fine. But only one.

9:20pm
Sorry, officer.
I thought this was a bathroom.
I'll get a towel.

11:56pm
Pour myself in bed.
Stoked to sleep in tomorrow.
Shit! Today's Thursday.
