White Collar Hell

i was so caught up
in synching
non-native audio
with video at work
that i did not notice
that everyone with keys
to the building left
and now i'm stranded
and no one will answer their phone
so i am still at my desk
but i am smoking
and drinking beer
alone
which is not that much
different
than home
but less comfortable
and too bright
with no cats around
to hiss at me when
i pull their tails
and i'm pretty sure
that the giant metal box
we call a server
which always hums
a disturbing note
is giving me cancer
while i sit
