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.
