Waiting at Work

Blinking
I was waiting at work.
The computer churned on my data.
The droning fan was teasing me.
The black screen fed my frustration.

I needed the results at once.
I began to grow impatient.
My pulse raced and my mind seethed.

Now that the process is complete,
I see that the project was doomed.

I was waiting for all the wrong reasons.
