Mindful Writing Challenge: Day 25


Career Fair

A sign “Career Fair Today!” hangs
from a table burdened with application forms.

Broadcasting stories
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.
