Donal Mahoney- A Poem

Corner Office
Unlike his peers
his office holds
no photo of a wife
no indication that he has
fathered five
and probably
will father more.
There’s a silver ashtray, though,
and a tinkling chandelier 
and carpeting
his wife would like
soars across the floor.

Donal Mahoney spent his life
working in offices because 
he was no good with tools.
