My Chosen Vocation

When you emailed me
with news of my failure
in my chosen vocation
it left me confused
but also rather sexy-looking.

I slumped on the couch
in a daze and my hair
was messy in an intentional way
because I had volumized it
with Matrix Essentials
Foam Volumizer.

My beard was also volumized
with a vitamin enriched formula
that nourishes dormant roots
with essential nutrients
so that I looked like Walt Whitman
after he had walk’d along

the beach under the paling
stars of morning.
