1,000 Days of Losing

How can I have lost this much and still have too much to lose? I get up every day early to catch the bus now that the car has been repossessed and go stand in line at the union hall hoping to get picked to go out and help on the beer trucks for the day. When that doesn’t happen (most of the time), I walk to the unemployment office to save bus fare and check the boards, fill out more forms, sign up for counseling and head out to the food pantries.
