Click and Move

In Poetry, Pushcart Prize Nominations - 2011 on November 14, 2011 at 2:53 am

In the mean while
I learn these little programs,

Click and Move.
Click and Move.

I have been
told that this
will help my resume
to out-shine all
the others and
well, self reliance,

self reliance
as Emerson knows,
makes a man
into a star

so that he may wiggle
brightest in the evening sky.

I like doing these tiny tasks, I suppose.
I’ve been told that I cannot help
but like the thought of progress..
