L.A. the Blog Poetry: ‘Cover Letter’

Poster photographed on the corner of Grace Avenue and Franklin Avenue, in Hollywood, simply named “Pink Goats.”

To whom it may concern,

Educated and experienced with references.
Currently not working, a perfect fit with a
Strong skill set and all the necessary interpersonal
Technopacity, stuffed into file cabinets of first
Impressions labeled smiles and handshakes, and folded into
Organized years.

After a year of dedicated time spent interning
Within corporate walls within walls that
Subdivide halfway to the fluorescent sky,
With a lake view of mountain paradise
Flickering on the user-friendly Apple window of 1’s and 0’s,
In between data sets entered with 10 digits,
10 years later still interned with a new name:
Assistant.

Work hard like the tough get going,
Dedicated to hard work with abundant time
With a willingness for the above and beyond
Means always open and available, nights and
Weekends, in the hope for upwardly mobile
New identifications, advancing 401Ks and a parking spot
Personally surnamed.

Feel free to contact at anytime, thanks and hope all is well.

Sincerely,

The Unemployed
