We are all very excited to be here

He shaved off about 40 years of his life
at the company, until he was told
to stop.

Packing up his corner office,
he had assumed his job was
a never-ending track that aligned him,
like a model earth facing a model sun,
stars and systems at his back.

But his career was not a perfect coil;
it was a spike. Now the calendar
is as bland and open as his waiting,
and the wall.
