Job Hunting

We become animalistic,

gnashing teeth and tearing off the hems

of each other’s shirtsleeves.

Resumés shoot out of our backpacks

like Olympians at the crack of an empty gun.

We drink our caffeine too fast.

Our eyes sparkle desperation.

Green is our favorite color,

unless yours is mustard yellow,

which we really love more.

Bleached gardenia is our

white-pressed shirt scent.

We walk the streets with migraines

and bright smiles because

we are just happy, happy, happy.

So… will you take us?
