I want a job…

Is it too much to ask
for a place that will have me,
that will cherish me —
a place to make things right?
Is it too much to ask for adequate pay,
not to be rich, but to afford what I need?
Is it too much to feel welcome somewhere —
to feel kinship rather than
the cold challenge
of proving oneself?
Is it too much to ask for a commute
that doesn’t resemble the ascent of Sisyphus
or a role that doesn’t burden me like Atlas?
Jobs are everywhere
and yet nowhere…
Why…
