In the lighted room

the editors

at their sleek

brown desks

surrounded by

open carpet and neon

 

sit sideways

to the windows

 

Their bookcases

murmur

with hanging gardens

green

falling

like waterfalls

 

the editors dream of

walking in old growth forest

 

In the darker room

cluttered, crowded

metal cans of computer-tape

floor to ceiling

data entry sit

with their backs to the window

 

The walls are covered

with five-foot posters of basketball stars

climbing the air

in shoes like rock, in shoes like concrete

 

Data entry can’t move in the crush

 

dream of

bursting upwards,

 

transformed.
