Accessorize My Desk

Accessorize My Desk

A Poem by Denise

when I'm bored at my desk, I write about the objects on it staring me down






























Red, Yellow, Blue - Gelantinous, tacky glue

Square, blocky, cube - I write my memories on you


Gray, black hue - Streaks on paper of red, black, and blue residue

Oblong, with a tip to protrude - On the end I like to chew


Silver, black, blue - Sharp metal fastners you do include

Long, flat, ergonimically groomed - Attaching papers from their scattering doom


White and only white hue - Viscous liquid in a tube

Round bottle and cap to screw - Correcting mistakes done by red, black, blue
