Treasure Island

Lee Henry


And I Said...


Walked through the door of the office building
Passers by, greeting, smiling, and hand shaking
Striding down the hall, glancing briefly at my watch
Enter suite 535
Good morning Mr. Henry
handing me a cup of coffee
And I said
Good morning
Work day has come, then work day goes
Grab my briefcase, laptop and another item or two
Close my office door behind me
About to exit suite 535, Good evening Mr. Henry, Handing me a file
And I said
Good evening
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday,
Week after week after week
Good morning, good evening
Day in, and day out
Month to month, year to year
Round and round, like a merry-go-round
like a roller coaster, coasting
like a pot of boiling water, boiling dry
What can I say, what should I say, Do I have a choice?
Do I have a voice? If I want to maintain, I must speak again
Monday morning
Entering suite 535
Good morning Mr. Henry
Handing me a cup of coffee
And I said...

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
