In Her Office

He slips into her office and
settles in a chair comfortably
while she cuddles the phone to her ear attentively.

Moments of revery - What kind of person could she be?

candy dish, dictionary, zip code book, letters ready to be mailed,
stapler, paper clips, note pad, files opened and empty spaces arranged across her desk
