Behind the Pyramid

These Mornings

 

That April Chuck bought a lightweight three-piece suit
from Brook’s Brothers.

The next day he dressed and explored the office buildings
in San Francisco’s Financial District.

He liked the Alcoa Building and arrived every morning
at nine to ride the elevator.

Chuck always got out on the thirteenth floor and
he always took the stairwell down.

Chuck eventually made friends with the other office
workers who arrived and entered the elevator promptly
at nine.

Eventually everyone said good morning to Chuck and
Chuck felt loved and accepted.

Then one day a trim young executive in a snazzy Calvin
Klein asked Chuck why he always wore the same
suit to work; and it was time to find another building.
