March 9, A fine day

just a fine day
drink coffee at home
and then later
when the sun dares to show itself, I go to work

just a fine day
feed myself at lunch time
then later
more work, and I might finally get to go home

oh, it’s such a fine day.

January 14, Invisibility of Purpose

applying for a job
is a lot like
having the super power
of invisibility

not to be confused with
although I’m sure
that’s how
the employers feel

I wander these streets
of applications
bureaucracy and
polished presentations
to the tune of marching drums
and trumpets
waving my flag
shouting, screaming
and yet,

Thanks Obama!
