Working From Home. A Poem by Neil Fulwood

The office as ghost town,
a scrap of paper near the shredder
standing in for a tumbleweed.

The photocopier looms silent
and implacable as a monolith.
Filing cabinets invite comparison

to old films about espionage
where files reside in dusty rooms.
The office jumbles genres

but perhaps more than anything
captures the atmosphere
of an art-house film, endless

static shots of ordinary things,
the camera holding on them
so long that they slip the holdings

of their context, become abstract.

  1. We find the meaning of art… perhaps life was here all the time.
