I’m Back!

It’s been forever! Essentially, school started and owned my life for the past few months. My goal while on winter break is to get back into the habit of posting every day. Get ready for two weeks of poetry!

“Write about someone who does work you would never do.”

-Kim Addonizio, “Ordinary Genius”

Presidents

Are mocked for their mistakes

Blamed when things go wrong

I could be a leader

I’m to smart to be president

“Write a poetic ‘résumé,’ describing several jobs you had. In each case, give us an image that helps us experience what the job was like for you.”

-Kim Addonizio, “Ordinary Genius”

 

 

Minimum wage

First job

So young

Terrified

Ice cream

Malts

A line out the door

Whose order?

His order?

One more drink

More

 

In through the garage

Sleep on the couch

Girl wakes first

Boy sleeps in

Games

Chores

Water fun

Lunch

Camp

Paid to play

 

Internship

No money

Wander Chicago

Take in the sights

Catch good audio

Camera on the El

Lugging through the streets

Beautiful

 

Fresh food

Hot food

ABC food

Dishes

Dishes

Dishes

Making friends

Catapult tomatoes

Dining Hall

 

Busy days

Slow days

Oh so boring days

Bring a book

Scoop and serve

Ice cream

Nuts

And candy

 

Thank you for shopping

Hell

Repetition

Repeated Music

Repeated Task

Carve my brain out

With a spoon

ABC gum

Messy shoppers

No money

No time

No freedom

 

Arrive

Adapt

Thirty new faces

Thirty new names

Notes

Fall behind

Love the kids

Hate goodbye
