squeeze out of workplace significance
  joseph ianni

the negation of the id
entities surrounding me make
their way in
sides need to be chosen as
cubicle walls close in on my
next assignment squeezed into
a smaller file
all the files squeezed
into a smaller file
a smaller file
give me a desk
give me an ego
a small drawer with a lock
i'd try to fit the entities in
squeezing in is squeezing out
squeezing out is squeezing in
that's our task
our daily task
seemingly eternal
new day new file
new desk new title
nude nude nude
