It is with expectation that I put my interview clothes on
on my day off.
With expectation I keep my phone at the ready,
With expectation I write down the questions I have
about the new workplace.
In faith, I go about my errands,
Trying not to drink too much caffeine,
Realizing I could really benefit from some gum,
Jumping a bit when the phone rings (Hi, mom).
I know the real call will come
I know they will want me to ‘come by when you can so we can talk’
And I want to be ready.
I am ready.
