A New Career

Be here at eight

said the group leader.

I was late but she

said that was okay

and handed me a kit

just like hers

a tin box full of nails

and a hammer.

I strapped my light

to my head which

was still in good shape

and began reinforcing

everything. When I

reinforced you

you seemed angry

and attractive. When I

reinforced the youth

reinforced me and

her outfit looked great.

This job is not perfect

but the pay is okay

and I like working

outdoors. The group

leader respects us all

and at home the kids

love to shake

my tin box and think

of how close we once

were to collapse
