Corporate Mixer.

These things are our last chance.

Twenty-seven isles on the jagged edge
of a Saturday night.
Bossman with no fans
Sipping tonic and idealism makes sure we’re
Thoroughly mixed and fixed
of the trauma of the workweek.
Business bible thumping fat cat spouting Forbes:
“A happy staff is a productive staff,”
just keep your glass half-empty personality all
nice and buttoned up behind the suit jacket
clanging tin cups along the insides of your pinstripes.
The pink and amber spheres
Draining sip by sip into the void between,
Pooling on the fragile bridges.
