Experience required

December 19, 2017

At 26 I got tired of working crap jobs with a college degree.
Someone else posted an Employment Wanted ad in the Seattle Times that said something like
New to Seattle. Need a job. Call me…
Seriously? It was the only ad in that section. No competition. …Light bulb.
By the next week I pulled together $111, posted this ad and watched it kick my life into high gear.
Three people responded. I went with the one I was sure would make me a millionaire.
It was the accidental beginning of being slung-shot out of the narrative,
moving into a Honda Civic for over two years and living this life as a poet.
