Fifteen more years of coffee cup days
fifteen more hours
of a sunlit Sunday
at fifty
computers
tracking me down
screens
dominating my life

Mondays
another pain in the chest
please don’t ring
phones
I had spent thirty years
since those childhood days
oh to be 18 again
why, I’d be a film director, a movie producer
anything to move outside
away from that desk
with its bland blue screen
those forever ringing phones

images

Maybe in fifteen years retirement will form the greatest anti climax of my life
maybe I’ll remember that Monday morning
with that computer desk
that pain in the chest
dominating my life
bit by bit
I doubt it
