Nine-to-Five

millions of workers
milling at their desktops
working on walking

a sentence through
a pasture then a group
of sentences laboring

up green hill
left step right
step sweat bearing

four-legged baah
ing weights into a cloud
of words electronic

thunder into pamphlet
into hand into head
and then again
