are you sick ?

At work when I don’t feel like making eye contact or chatting up colleagues while rushing past them in hallways someone will walk up to me and ask,”Are you sick ? ”

It is like that is the only justifiable reason for my  un-sunny disposition or  incommunicadoness . How about all of human existence is a drag but work we must, take the subway we must, rubs thighs with multiple man spreaders we must, ’cause gotta pay the bills we must.

“Commuter’s Lament or A Close Shave”


So tired.

If late,

Get fired.

Why bother?

Why the pain?

Just go home.

Do it again.
