Desk Jockey

Outside the new, clean snow lies like cotton wool.
Inside is a desk covered with rubbish;
broken cup full of old coffee,
unidentifiable wires with USB plugs,
rusty keys,
dead pens,
broken staplers,
loads and loads of paper,
copier paper.
Hidden in the paper mountain,
like raisins in a huge papery dough;
"Animals Without Backbones",
"History of Western Philosophy",
"Genetics",
and "The Golem" by Collins and Pinch!
The sun shines on the cottony snow.
