In the lab you are not the priority

I cross the glass door

And another set of rules

Sits on my shoulders and shouts.

Hands are hesitant,

the risk analysis is fast,

The location controlled,

My breathing not a priority anymore.

Time escape

Rediscover the minutes
Passing unnoticed while you work.
Annoyed by waiting times,
I waste the gift of those small breaks
Daydreaming me out of the lab
And laying me on a silvery beach,
At least for a while.

Art in the lab

Hard life in they lab
Where hard materials and soft dreams
are tested
I don’t feel I deserve
Your pastel smiles and encouragement
When my data are a Pollock
And my protocol a rollercoaster.
Be there and keep quiet
To watch the show.
