the meeting ate into our leave
like some rogue caterpillar
nibbling at the edges 
of the sun ripened green

the email client pings 
like moths drawn to the light
distracting our attention
with fluttering worded wings

teams notifications buzzin' 
like a self important blowfly
Microsoft's version of connection 
a far off, distant second cousin 

incoming phone calls vibrate 
like a beetle on its back
spiralling around twisted lines
on tiny waves as it emanates 

these insects have their place
in the corporate ecosystem
sometimes they need be shooed away
for us to regenerate and have space
