Dare

I sit and listen to two men speaking Spanish.
I know not what they say; but I am caught up by the lyrical rise and fall of their
phrases.

Sunlight shines through the windows of the atrium.
The open window pane on my monitor bathes my eyes in a different light.
It dares me to fill it with words.

My mind drifts to a different place:
I hear waves crash.
Drums beat!
Onlookers clap in time.

Do I join the dance?

“Awww, what the hell…”

Spinning,
Clapping,
Laughing,
Jumping,

A little trickle of sweat
escapes.

It trails across my brow.

A single droplet falls on the desk in front of me.
Reality creeps back in.

Time to go back to work.
