It’s a dance
except without music
just the flop sweat of nerves
and the hope that this new deodorant is up to the task.

You ask a question
I answer, hoping that if I tell the truth that it is what you want to hear
You ask if I have any questions
and I am glad I memorized questions that
are curious
(Curious enough?)
but not about money
Never about money at the interview

It’s amazing to me
when you think about it
how in two hours
a decision is made a
about who will sit in the next office
forty hours a week
for the next ten years.

Two hours.
