the small-town superintendent

he was hanging above the boardroom table
the extension cord for the overhead projector
around his

its prongs hanging down his white shirt
like a bolo tie next to his bolo tie
a black braided leather with
ivory and turquoise fixings

turquoise wasn’t quite his color
as it’s meant to
bring good fortune
and open the lines of communication

he didn’t seem so comfortable swinging there
in the air conditioned breeze
although he did seem more open to listening
