Resume


I'm so busy
only coffee
calms me down.
Here's my
paystub: it's
another genome.

When I was
small
I thought I was all.
Now older wiser,
a microscopic
mouth.

If reincarnation
got
commodified
I probably could
afford
only being me.

Adhesive
is my
overtime;
I use a
flashlight full of
numbers.

Married 50 years
to myself —
divorce papers.
I have fonts
for lunch & symptoms
for dinner.

My pension
is voicemail
laryngitis.
I'm so busy
my dreams
drink coffee.
