The Sleep Division


Apparently, no one has ever seen it. The rumor persists, however, that there is a section called the Sleep Division, nowhere to be found on the organizational chart, which pulls the strings in our company.

Sagging down over the eyes
Eyelids. Afternoon in a haze.

Thanks to the Sleep Division's invisible hand
Agenda Five is gracefully on its way
To the dreamland

When an overworked colleague known for falling asleep at his desk disappears all of a sudden one day, the whispering begins: "He's been transferred to the SD!"

The lunch bell gives a woozy ring
Whereupon the Section Manager vanishes
The Department Chief vanishes

Aborted projects
Shimmer here and there
Like oil on water

Stripped bare
A dream lies still
Not the way it started
