Going through the want ads
searching for a part-time gig
there it was, wanted
stable work needed!
I seriously considered the position
but then realized rather quickly
horseshit stinks and laughing out loud
would not help like Febreze.
Then I recalled a moonlight bathe
a horse tail fanning my skin
I became starry-eyed
Oh I so want to be a child again
stare in marvel at the open sky.
So I decided to not accept
the stable position due in part
that I’m not stable
because I’m a poet, part-time.
