served fresh from the forest floor


  • dry clacks of keys on the keyboard
  • uncontrolled office chatter
  • muffled ringing of an unanswered telephone (nobody else cares except Melder)
  • officemate  singing first few stanzas of Pearl Jam’s “Betterman” to stave off the sleepiness
  • rustle of paper
  • hum of the malfunctioning airconditioning
  • laughter from the women’s bathroom
  • thump of impatient feet
  • mouse clicks
  • cold sandalled feet
  • aroma of instant coffee
  • stale, reconditioned air
