review of a poem by ellen kenney

i am unemployed. i have tried applying to several places that have claimed to be 'hiring.' one of those places was the writing center at a local college. i was excited to work there and i had references. i envisioned scenarios were i was happy and working at the writing center. i never applied. situations like that have happened several times during the course of my 'job search.' i felt a deep connection to ellen kennedy when i read 'i might work in a laundromat!' and i thought 'yes, i understand' and 'i like this poem' and 'i like these other poems too.'

you should read the poems in her poetry collection here.
