So, what do you do?





My least favorite

conversation starter

Actual question

How do you make money?

Who gives a flying fuck?

When 85% of working humans

hate their jobs

Alternate answers –

So, what do you do?

Stare

at clouds

and hate gravity

So, what do you do?

Hide

unprovoked erections

in my waistband

So, what do you do?

Buy

more books

then I can read

So, what do you do?

Contemplate

the meaning of it all

while riding my lawn mower

around the yard

So, what do you do?

Wipe

until I bleed

self-conscious that I’m not

clean enough down there

So, what do you do?

Watch

light reflect off

shadows twist and fall

So, what do you do?

Write bad poetry.
