Business hours
Leave your problems
At the door

In here it’s
Targets, product launches
Terms and conditions

How do I schedule grief
Into my weekly planner

It will take my mind off it
I’m told

Working is good for me
They say

But is it really

Would they say that
If they stayed with me
Through the night

And saw me sobbing
In the pre dawn hours
Dreading the day
Rebuilding the facade
Each morning

They just look at
The numb smiles
And empty banter
To reaffirm their idea
Of my recovery

Mourning has no
Key performance indicators
