office humor

I need to get out of here
before I start throwing things
before the words fly like paper clips
before the stapler, much heavier, wings
itself across the room
my anger, heavier still, consumed
in a hurricane of office supplies
absurd, yes, dangerous, true,
I carefully lay out one folder
then the next
I need to find the exit
before I start being myself.
