Career Fair

I was never one for shaking hands and schmoozing
with people in ties and power-suits,
acting like I’m really interested
in their company.                             Who wants to be
painting smiles on their face
all the time?
I watched my classmates                run around
from one tableclothed fold-out
table to another, holding folders full
of meaningless papers,                   pretending
they’re really something.
Enthusiasm eye-shadow
smearing from sweat.                      Gripping
the hand of the next maybe employer
as if their lives depended on it.
