The American Dream

Florescent light
keyboard tapping
HVAC whirring
gray, fabric walls,
square tile ceiling,
people barely breathing.

Overpriced office chair
cafeteria food
dirty workrooms
slow elevators
landline phones.

Lucky to have steady income
lucky to have a job
lucky you can work
lucky you have benefits
lucky you get paid vacation and sick time
