A sign “Career Fair Today!” hangs
from a table burdened with application forms.
loud voices spilling out of rooms.
“My husband left me;” “it’s my turn;”
“my kids are grown.”
“…just looking for a fresh start.”
“…out of work…”; “…starting out on my own…”
They’re all here looking for a place
that will pay a decent wage on their terms.
