Listing skills for a job application
Jul 20

It feels like everything is institutionalized

But you can’t teach common sense,

Listing skills for a job application

I can’t write down intelligent

Because your level of intelligence can only be judged by others,

What you have done

someone else may have done differently,

I can’t put down open minded because

People can’t go both ways,

Except in a sexual cause

Some people tend to go both ways,

But people can only be open minded to the things they have been though

Because in the end one

Can only make one decision,

So the only skill I really have is

Common sense.

learning skills in the outdoors

standing for prayer
the corner of the school desk
thrice daily finds me

flatness and hardness,
and the fluorescent lighting
heavenly verses

it’s tuesday morning
forgive us our trespasses
and I’m told to chant


horseback riding is
a wonderful thing for girls
it builds self-esteem

trail rides through the scrub
learning skills in the outdoors
Palomino flanks,

hard leather saddle
rolling, dazed, back and forth and
sweating in the heat


vaseline vignettes
of slick and dewy couples
raw, tanned romance, all

in rapid Spanish
the love in Latin Lover
is jacuzzi steam

all we can do is
laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh
and laugh, and watch them

So many spices
Chef tried a culinary masterpiece
Connoisseur’s nightmare

Add the right amount of spices. Always more is not right. :)

Practice not
until you merely get it right,
practice earnestly
until you cannot get it wrong.

Hone thy skills,
not for those around you,
but for thyself,
then shall thy skills
be truly applicable.

If a woman tells you she feels ignored
                    drop your things and
          run to her.
If a man tells you he feels ignored
                  drop your everything
          and run away

society. humor. humans.

i couldn't help but lick the blood
from my red prada stigmata

you couldn't help but notice the
stained glass pieces you hold

Yes, yes people skills.

If you have it.
You could go into any situation and talk your way out of it.
If you have it.
You make a good doctor/lawyer/negotiator.

If you have it.
You truly make a great correctional officer.
And mostly likely to avoid the trouble that comes to others.

Yes, yes people skills.
Which is a different form of body language that has its purpose.
We ALL have it.
Might not have the control skills to use it.

Yes, people skills.
The ability to leave someone feeling comfortable.

in the training camp, they were
teaching boys  survival skills.

We're so alike
We could be best friends
If only I knew how to talk
We would talk until the end

I have a real lack of social skills
