blue collar

nine to five
would you like a knife along with your order
to slit the rudeness away from the thing resting on your
shoulders?
five to nine
even my mind works overtime to make the sol rise
my sole is poking out bleeding out the sock and it grinds
my legs ache from years ago falling out the socket like soldiers stepping on landmines
i’m a soldier working on your telephone lines
rise to grind
stirring in corporate stew
don’t forget to add the logo that owns you
