A while back, inspired by poems from Tracie Vaughn Zimmer's book Steady Hands: Poems About Work and J. Patrick Lewis' book The Underwear Salesman: And Other Jobs for Better or Verse, we wrote about work or professions. Since it's Labor Day, I thought this would be a fun one to revisit. Here is a poem from Pat's book for a little inspiration.
Subway DriverHave fun with this one. I can't wait to read the results!
A sixty-mile-an-hour mole
On automatic cruise control,
I worm my way around and around
Big bunny tunnels underground
With folks who stare or read or sleep
And dream of something
