On 5 pm and being told
that a colleague
had committed suicide
earlier that day

What first greeted me

upon entering that room

were the sad, quiet faces

as we all sat around the table.


Thinking of her,

wondering why

and what happened

and some of it came out later.


But what was also on my thoughts

was finding out how management

had known about it all day long

as they readily pursued their disturbing calculation
