College Grad

Editing my resume,

searching for the buzzwords,

what will leap off the page?

“Tell me something about yourself.”


Where to start?

I need a paycheck,

I toiled for four years writing essays,

earning credits,

for a golden ticket to a career.


This is my fifth interview,

my thirtieth job application,

my fourth resume.

“Thank you, we’ll be in touch.”
