“Office Rat Triptych” by Chad Parenteau

Office Rat Work Song

Someone’s doing something
something
odd
too
fast
something
I
wanna
know
something
something someone’s doing.

Office Rat Evening Prayer

to my filth I made that
turning
tables
to
toilets
turning
toilets
to
notepads
turning
to that filth that I made.

Office Rat Farewell Wish

Don’t you remember
human
resources
warnings
think
human
seeking
classified
seeking
human
don’t you remember?
