Office Affair

Loosely Based On

It was the way

You fastened those two

Sheets of loose-leaf

With a paper clip

And placed a sticky note

On them whose meaning

Only you and I knew

Yet you kept your

Pencil handy

In case you so needed

To erase me out

Although I tried

To write on your heart

With permanent marker

It was no use

You had every intention

Of sticking me in

An envelope

Licking the seal shut

And delivering me

Back to loneliness
