Manic Monday

Author | Alyssa Trievett

Coffee plug scraped the wall,
an antique shop item waiting to be
used again, praying for fingerprints
to plant their namesake.
Waterfall counter pours over
paperwork and misused commas
in business emails and typos
are typed to death over
and out the door into
a hungover sunset.
Clock ticks hang
timecards up for the day.
