Letter Board

Letter Board, By Brian James Rational Poet on FB/META and @brianrrs37 on Twitter)

Black felt, enclosed
In a glass case
Telling you which room
White letters

Give you the name
Impersonal, clinical
Office, official
Business, credentials

Starburst mosaic
Recently buffed
Chemical waxy fragrance
Janitor’s closet maintenance

Elevator lobby
Everyone’s hobby
Press it again, and again
It’s lit up, cant you see it?

They shuffle in
The box fills up
All the numbers
All lit up

The doors open
Some let out
Heals click on floor
Closing the door

Another glass case
Pointing the way
325-344 to the right
300-324 to the left

Another beat
Of many hearts
Some to work
Others sick

Another sign
Becomes your greeter
Out in the street
Watch your meter
