    Wake up. Shower.
    Brush teeth. Comb hair.
    Don clothes. Eat.
    Run out front door.
    Jump in car thru open window.
    Turn ignition to four.
    Engine roars.
    Spin iPod wheel to Mars Volta.
    Album Octahedron.
    Song name Teflon
    Hit play.
    Speed off in works direction.
    Punch in, late.
    Make sad face.
    Tell boss sorry.
    No excuse.
    Just apologize,
    And walk away.
    Sit at desk.
    Face keyboard and screen.
    Watch seconds fade from clock face.
    Half way, take break.
    Smoke something. Eat. Lounge.
    Reenergize and walk back in.
    Sit down, erase frown.
    Write in book.
    Until they look and realize I am being unproductive.
    Get up walk around.
    Stretch, look at clock, look at phone, and see they say the same time.
    Phone rings at desk, I run back to answer
    And am greeted by insolence.
    I swear my innocence.
    Damn their ignorance.
    Hang up and regret answering.
    Turn ringer off.
    Close eyes, lean back.
    Hands on my head and feet up on my desk
    So relaxed I sleep momentarily
    Until woken by the chatter behind me.
    Fuck this cubicle banality
    Do something.
    Make myself seem busy, like Iím being productive, like Iím getting something done.
    Like Iím worth this paycheck
    When in fact all Iíve perfected is doing nothing.
    Turned being lazy into an art form.

      This is really good, it kept me interested and it is really so true! I had a good laugh thinking about this as I read it.

    Keep on writing.

      Haha! This is brilliant. So true. I also try to dabble in the art of doing nothing. Don't let others be confused it is an art. It is more straining and exhausting than anything else to appear "busy"
    Great write, come by and comment some of my work sometime.
