For those who don't know 
the meaning of work,
let me explain it to you.

The phone rings.
I answer it.
An envelope is dropped
on my desk.
I open it.
An email pops
into my inbox.
I reply.

It's a series of reactions
like when the doctor
taps your knee with a hammer
to test your reflexes.

In fact,
my lower leg
often responds
with an unforced kick
to various office stimuli.

It's a brave boss
who bends over
near my shoe.
