Valhalla is a meeting room.

Valhalla is a meeting room.
Leather chairs surround a glazed wooden table.
Their ability to spin left unadvantaged.
Regularly cleaned, with lemon-scented detergent,
but overodoured by whiteboard cleaner.
There are still faint orange streaks on the surface-
a result of neglect, not force.
The blinds are drawn closed, the lights
hold a dim reddish glow.
Seat pumped too high for heels
and leather cleats to reach grey carpeting.
Door shut and soundproof walls, so
no one knows what goes on in there.
