Activities During Meetings

Richard Lighthouse

if i eyeball the    end of my pen,
just right,
it sits on the nose of the
vice president.
stirring my coffee  counter
clockwise creates australia
in a cup.

clockwise,      a giraffe.
when i yawn and stretch
my ears      unplug
and sounds go    high    er.
the balding man's head
has hair tentacles
like an octopus battling his scalp. 
my chair only
squeaks when i    lean right.

is it time for lunch?
