A high-powered catch up

Thursday 5 July 2018 / poetry

You three just out of a first Monday-back meeting
Projecting your voices in the middle of the open-plan office
Standing because you have places to be: no time for seating

Talking baby and house, middle class palaver


Careful speech like a tightly-choreographed ballet


You want everyone to hear but you’re so


+1 networking
+1 status
+1 sense of importance
-1 human
