Stable work

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.
