Wake up

The finer things

Wake up,
It’s time to be invisible.

Watered-down hand sanitizer in the men’s room

Laughter from a joke you’re not in on

Coca-Cola cans from the vending machine

past expiration date.

Paperwork, can you get this done yesterday,

But before that, do this.

Make sure your hands are clean and

Come back tomorrow, we don’t want to see whatever

it is you do,

Don’t do what we

think you don’t need to do, but we don’t know,

because you’re invisible.

Wake up because you’re spilling coffee

on the keyboard and that joke you hear

was never meant to  be funny.

Have a Coke and a smile

and wash away the stains with

tepid bathroom water.
