Human Resources+Universal Waste

a woman sat her bag down in front of me

she asked me to keep watch on it until she came back
I did what she said
until she came back

I noticed a girl,
staring in the window
I thought about me,
only looking out

it came to me,
the universe,
in a thought

I thought that,
molecules pass on their weight,
to the others,
who pass it back

I thought that,
there are molecules looking in,
while the others view out

it came to me that,
no matter how vast the universe,
or small we are,
we resemble each other...

that's who we are

-It pays to work,

Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
