Ten Things To Do On Unemployment

to be accurate—the term is underemployed
measure by measure i still
cobble handy work together
discover all i can about recovery
think of reasons not to relapse nicotine habit
read Don Quixote, Dain Curse, & The Carousel
even write a book of sonnets
pay zen-like attention to food preparation
count loose change with expectant joy
walk two and a half miles a day
find perfect gifts
fall for waitresses who refill coffee
at the tables occasionally occupied
in the sudden andante pace
