i am your (empty
dead-eyed cashier, mechanically
ringing up your nachos and popcorn;
have a great day!
weekend plans and giggling friends,
i am Maslow’s slave
face blur past, i ring up your purchase
come back soon!
but i’ll be here right, i am
your bus driver,
your garbage man,
your waiter, i am all the invisible
and i’ll be right here,
this is my) future
