Meeting

The members of the meeting
sit around the table
by this time,
some slumped in their chairs,
others fidgetting
none but the speaker
engaged in the subject of the moment.
He speaks at great length
explainingtheprosandconsorconsandprosofsomething-
withoutendormeaningordescription;
he takes a sip of water and continues
describingtheintricaciesofwhateverpointlessthought –
processisdriftingthroughhisbrainand-
leakingoutintotheairsurroundingeveryonein-
animpenetrablebarriertothoughtexceptjustonemutuald aze
brows furrow eyes glaze into non-medical coma
doodles have long since stopped.
oxygen no longer haunts this space,
only runon words
wordsthatcontinueonnandonandonandonandoninto#@$&(! *!
