My Future Job Options 2010

Janet Kuypers
(poetry converted to prose)

    okay, so I can’t hold a job in my own profession, andI can’t even get a job in the mall.
    not having an income really pisses me off.
    I want to yell at the world for not giving me the job I’m owed. I mean, I get to the point where I want to hit things.
    and that’s when it occurred to me: (the frightening thing was telling my husband) that I’m meant to be a dominatrix.
    when my analytical side dominates me, I see how it makes perfect sense: no sex, no nudity just make men feel like shit at an hourly rate.
    this is really beginning to appeal to me.
    but after my husband has been adequately frightened, he checked on line and told me that this was illegal (is he telling me that because he doesn’t want me to do it?). But I want it to be legal... I want to say that I legally degrade men for a living (and make good money at it, actually).
    I guess it figures, I found another profession I’m good at. and I still can’t get a job.
