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.
Pried my thumbnail off
With the staple remover
Just to stay awake.
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!
- Read the book and reflect upon the poetry of disengagement. What would you do if you felt this disengaged?
- Try your hand at writing a haiku of engagement.
