workin' hard at the City Clerk's office

never mind the line.
never mind public servants
looking the other way from the line,
intent on computer screens,
I count 7 agents, 3 serving customers,
a line.
never mind the line.
and when she finishes with one customer,
she turns to the woman with her finger on her lips
and they chat for a bit.
it's such hard work
and only when her mind is fully refreshed,
she turns her attention to me, to find out
where I bought my dress, she has such a hard
time finding three quarter sleeves.
never mind the time,
never mind my time.
