2:15 in the afternoon
too many people at the library
shouldn’t these people be at work?
They are sucking up all the bandwith.
Their children already show
they walk like the adults they will not become,
the fire alarm goes off and they all file out
the unemployed, the housewives, the administrators
the community college part time students, children
they stand around,
tapping at their cell phones
like they have somewhere more important to be
