The Office This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

are in bed -

I tucked them in over an hour

ago.

I polished the mahogany

table today

maybe he'll notice

the way it shines

when he

eats the stew I

made for

him.

It is getting cold,

though,

it's been waiting patiently

on the table

next to the glass

filled with melting ice

drowning in

watered-down coke -

poured

two hours ago.

he was supposed

to get home

from work

at six ...

but maybe

he was held up at

the office.

maybe

I should pour

out the coke -

it must be getting

flat

just sitting there.
