The Natural History of My Office


more hours spent here than nearly anywhere,
home away from home, reflection of me:
cats of all types — plus pictures of my pair —
on my desk, the wall, and cup for coffee,
watch over me, keeping me company

also found here, small touches of Paula
bright colors all over my area:
blue stapler, pink push pins, yellow flowers,
orange post-it notes, green highlighter; it’s the
small things that keep me smiling for eight hours
