along for it

I drank too much coffee yesterday
then sat pinned
with you on my lap, asleep
like one of those padded safety bars
on carnival rides
I became the captive audience
of office politics
three exchanges between my husband and his boss
so awkward, uncomfortable
and hot in there
but what could I do
with your head in one hand
and a drink in the other
I just watched

along for it
