OFFICE BLUES

Glory Sasikala 1964 (Kolkata)



In the stillness
Someone coughed
Someone yawned
Boss on phone
He –
Control A
Control C
Control V
Copy-pasting
My thoughts
In his diary.
The whirring fan
My ice-cold
stare
Blank at screen
Her tinkling laughter
jarrs on my tired brain
Switch off.
Time to go home...
