the office desk

The office Desk.

The office desk made of solid oak

And the top was shiny as an ice-rink before showtime.

It is not shiny no more, coffee stains and drops of mysterious

Substances, could it be wine?

This desk was once where a judge sat condemning people

To hang if they didn’t conform to the politics of

The dictatorship spoke about democracy and other words

Of treason.

The drawers on the desk are full of unpublished manuscripts

And will be so forever, after all, they have had the distinction

Of being written, what more is there to ask?
