Contamination by silicone

 silicone creeps along surfaces
from the oven mitts you treasure in your kitchen drawer,
the hand lotion you love, the bathroom caulk.
it crept into the cleaning lab and contaminated the
surfaces and their minds
all of a sudden unable to process the simplest things
their words sticky against each other, their minds
dulled as if encased in glue
silicone contaminates a meeting
it's no longer engaging or new, it's the 
same old same old, who did, what happened
when and how to rearrange everything in 
their tidy compartmentalized jobs
silicone is messy but so 
is life.
