Unemployed

Looking in the mirror
A stranger in there
Watching TV late
Absently stroking hair

Playing solitaire at noon
Eating breakfast at four
Getting dressed at six
Crying out; no more

Taking out the trash
Avoiding neighbor’s eyes
Having one more drink
Telling yourself lies

Looking for a job
Desperately seeking pay
Feeling like shoe dirt
Hoping for a better day
