Temporarily Employed

rule
waiting-down

If I was paid
for all the time
I sat
waiting to be seen
outside some office

I’d be a millionaire

I’d retire from being invisible
I’d pay the invisible rent,
the invisible bills.
I’d put invisible food
on the invisible table

But right now,
I just can’t wait to be seen,
to get some work
to buy some time
to see myself get by.
