21 more things = 42

The last post was the 21 things I KNOW at 42. At the end I said I'd consider writing 21 more things to make it 42 in total & then ...

Monday

No Title


(an untitled gift for an untitled gift)


you
snuck up on me
gained entry through the door marked
EMPLOYEES ONLY

i saw you once
or twice
waiting in the lobby
& hot stepped it past
as though you weren’t

NO VACANCIES

i never even glanced
over your application
before noticing it was in
the trash

here you are
again
uniformed & ready
to steal me from myself
behind my back
& under my very nose
applying for the job
before i even considered posting
HELP WANTED signs

you’ve been on the job
less than a week
& already you are
EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH
sneaky brown-noser,
do-gooding,
ladder climber

my heels are kicked up
on my desk
watching you work
& work me
glad to have the POSITION FILLED
for however long
your work is good
