Abrupt Stop

Abrupt Stop

Dear Applicant,
The hogs at processing scream a little more loudly
Thank you for submitting…
The hummingbirds no longer seem playful
We are lucky to have so many talented applicants…
A blue heron flaps awkwardly out of my lane
We will not be moving forward with your application…
A car hugs the center line menacingly
Best of luck in your future endeavors…
The cat drops a dead mouse at my feet
Silence in the space between my lips
Someone else’s life.
The breeze stirs green trees in vain.


The day took a turn for the rough. No more jingles for the near future, unless they’re my angry jingles.
