NaPoWriMo Day 6: Making the Job Offer

Days 6 through 12 were all written where I had no access to the internet so please find them here retrospectively.

Making the job offer

can be joyous.
Presenting a gift of
security and development.
Praising their biography.
You haven't heard gratitude until,
you've offered a job to a cleaner.

It can be tedious.
Weekends suspended by time,
time to think about it.
Negotiating start dates
terms and conditions, salaries
managers always quibble salaries.

Sometimes you don't want to call.
You've sold a dream that's not there
and though you drop hints of reality
down the well of the receiver
the reverberations of elation still return,
gritting your smile into a grimace.
