Working The Desk 1001

Cool cubicle setting, a weathered view of present outside heat,

 

I never thought a job like this,

In a library I sit, comforted around so many resources-a relief.

 

(Not a soul to bark at me to move my feet.)

 

Making a stand at growing my wits.

In between now and accomplishment.

 

To date I check out and stack books.

To the next I watch for an approving look.

 

For what bar codes, laser scanners, and computer records exist.

 

Tomorrow I’ll be somewhere else, doing about the same, checking off a new and different list.

What a vast world there is.

 

I’d say, wow, things have changed.

And some stop at earning a career.

Life Lesson From a Lowly Twenty Something Year Old:

Just as you look down your attention is seized by that which makes you look up.

 

A friendly face makes a machine beep just behind my chair.

Logic explains not to care.

Any questions?

 

Balance the equation,

At present I feel I am getting more than I bargained for;

Pleasantly Surprised with all before my eyes,

Viewing situations from different angles to measure score.

Like always, and as before.

 

Sometimes  you need to know where you stand.
