olive green linoleum squares
laid in miles like government blankets
tiles of fluorescent days
seamless pinesol footsteps
clock arms signal slow-motion warnings
monotone communication
servants as civil as metronomes
measured paper molehills
grown in folders into stone homes
licensing leashes and tags
sand bags and hedgerows
slowly rolled on the conveyor belt
silt feet and sweat mix
affixed to number B1056.
