Work Compartment

The poem department is located in the sub-basement
Where the rats and mold make slowness
Into a vast lack of light

Effort's compartment, when grouped, is upstairs
On the open floor plan, phone calls and coffee
Shared objectives demand setting aside
The disappointments that lead one to verse

What is to be done
Must be queried and answered
Unquerulously, if we expect to get anywhere
That's the collective case, capital betters
Emphasized to take precedent
Over the thoughts bubbling over
In a head that prefers to stay underground
