Elevator World

I ride my life
in an elevator world
with so many
ups and downs
hardly ever stopping
at any floor
shut in that
small cubicle
by myself
pushing the buttons
occasionally someone
steps in for the ride
but only briefly
the cords hum
with movement
"what floor please"
I ask myself
I would like to
be able to say...
to tell myself
where to go...
