please don’t stand so close to me, boss
not only are you attractive in your own right
you remind me rather much of someone with whom i was once
and not sufficiently long enough ago
a little too much involved with for comfort
either mine or hers
or for that matter either of our spouses
and i see by your listing in the office directory, boss
you have what is these days referred to as a significant other

please, boss
you’re standing too close, and i am sitting down

my attraction to you is not what we would refer to as platonic
you have a way of leaning over a desk which i have noticed
