Where Erasers and Wastebaskets and I Am Kept
by Gerard Sarnat
I work for two desks.
One overlooks the sea, the other the forest.
The former is Lucite. Uncluttered. It’s all about open water.
The latter’s socked in by zealous woods plus sentimental photo fog.
On holidays overlords undo my chains, force me to go outdoors.
