Haiku to You

Office Haiku

James Rogauskas has written a short book of Haikus profiling the disengagement of cubicle life.

Here are two haikus from the book.

I encourage you to read the book if you want to see a poetic portrayal of workplace disengagement.

Today is payday —

For one brief, shining moment

It all seems worthwhile.

James has a website for the book but as of yet the possible level of disengagement is so high that there is nothing on it!

Get Engaged:

  1. Read the book and reflect upon the poetry of disengagement. What would you do if you felt this disengaged?
  2. Try your hand at writing a haiku of engagement.
