Office blind

Light through slatted blinds is supposed to be
all chiaroscuro, romantic, movie-like.

It should inspire smoking or the tipping of a hat,
but these office blinds divide a light too light for that

the gentle sing-song of your chat 
portends no threat, or plot.

I know this scene frame by frame you see,
so while the light cuts your face pleasingly

nothing will be spilt here, but a little bit of tea
and some minor confidence. 

It’s no basis for a film.
