to fill the gap

a gap has incised the ground in front of us.

you on one side, me on the other. you tap the yellow grass with your sneaker. rubble topples over. you don’t hear the echo.

sometimes the gap is so distracting, i’m lost for words. but you never look down. you never lose sight of me.

you’re still looking at me when i look up. “you’re quiet tonight. is all ok?”

“yes,” i respond and wait. because all other words have rolled into the gap and blurred into a wondrous infinity.

About tali2

I am a recent grad of the wonderful English major. Though I don't regret studying English one bit, I realize why my teachers, parents, friends, and imaginary mentors warned me against it: Because it leads you nowhere. But it did give me great writing skills which I hope to continue honing in this blog as I chronicle the tribulations of the terrible job hunt in the terrible job market of NYC. And I hope that my blog reminds fellow unemployed recent grads that you are not alone, inspires some hope within us, while presenting a snapshot of our lives to others who do not share the same self-imposed troubles.
