My Dream Job

I would like to deal in
Sitting, collecting dust with
Odysseus, Ivan K, Whitman
and Calvin,
chatting up shy kids
who wander in and wish
I would shut up
so they could find something to read,

stepping out for a smoke
to watch the world rush by
to the next and the next.

I’ll walk back.
