I WORK NIGHTS by Frank Friel

I walk halls and corridors

empty except for me.

My shadow follows along the walls

Soon I’ll be lunching

Eating alone in the moonlight.

What could be better?

Somewhere a phone rings and rings and rings

I smile at its discomfort

Nothing disturbs me here

I work nights.
