i’m seeking new employment.
i’d appreciate any leads.
i am looking for a position that
would be a great fit for a
actress and poet
who is unable to compromise on
what she believes.
and it would be great if i could
come in around 11 or 12 every morning
and no one would look at me crazy.
and if it was a place where
i could put my iPod down and play my music out loud
and my coworkers will sing and dance with me
as we knock down cubicle walls
and other barriers that separate humans from
making genuine connections with each other.
i’m seeking new employment
that‘s not just about me.
i really want to help people.
i want a job where people
walk in one way
and leave out another,
where i influence lives for the better.
i want a job where i go home better.
and one that pays me well enough to
and not worry about if i’ll have enough
and keeping up with student loan payments.
i want a job that makes me feel like
all my student loans were worth it,
like my debt has meaning.
and i want my employment there
to have meaning.
i’m dying for meaning.
and better credit.
and less time staring at a computer screen.
and more time expanding as a human being.
and no time losing me.
