Third Poem For The Stapler

Poem By Anna Moriarty Lev

The stapler teases me
as i sit at this desk.
he asks me, blankly,
mouth hanging open,
'what are you doing? '
i expect heavy breathing
to issue from the space
between his upper lip and lower jaw.
my hand twitches to grab him, squeeze him shut,
- resistance.
persistance.
the more days i don't think
don't think
don't think
don't think about...

As The Sun Sets

As the sun sets outside my big window
it hangs on the edge of the rooftops
and lingers orange there
with blue the color of your shirt that night
