at work

when the rain fell in the midst of the day
time walked slowly and carefully undone
and the whispers they weaved along the way
were filled with their laughter and painful puns

what happens at work helps pass the hours
what happens in the back melts the tensions
what's said in confidence strengthens power
what's said in silhouette goes without mention

don't misconstrue the smiles and furtive glances
please don't think we are sarcastic and mean
don't miss out on these humanistic chances
that reveal kindnesses in what's unseen

walk gently with us on our twisted way
we tell you everything in nothing we say
