I Do Not Miss Bowing Down to the King and Queen – Written Tuesday 25th May 2021 (Aged 46)

I Do Not Miss Bowing Down to the King and Queen

i cannot say
i miss working in the office
having to –
bow down to the king or queen
having to negotiate politics
none of that
is ever missed
and i do not yearn to be on the wrong end –
of dangerous egotists
maybe working from a home-space
is how i manage my head-space
and it stops my wellbeing
being churned up into environmental waste
i cannot say –
i miss pretence
and the anxiety
that leaves my self esteem cruelly bent
i am pleased to work from home
there are times when even isolation
and isolation feels me alone
but i do not miss bowing down
to the king and queen on their throne




James Garratt – Tuesday 25th May 2021
