black and white reflection

there’s my reflection
on the
glass portion
of the
office door

angled shadow
against the
a solid silhouette
w/o eyes

on the other side
the dust and
the sun erase my
solid figure-less-ness
it would
scare my secretary
looking up from her magazine
to see this
forming through the door,
past the backward
lettering –
if i had a secretary

But I Don’t

it’s my lonely office
w/o a phone
in the
reception area


Like It That Way
