Let’s face it. I was 1A. Being scheduled for urine samples while muttering I don’t even want a job. While the recruiter refuses to look at me I imply outloud that I’m just another commission to him. “Well!” he runs at me with a roar, “you’ll get nowhere with that attitude,” his disembodied voice a slamming door.

I feel my fear avalanche — when instinct tells you to run, but you can’t feel your feet — and my landlord’s bleating cries he needs the new Benz this year. A mushrooming mob pursues me through the streets in my ears. How many others need me to get a job? Then I get it. Yep, this is where I sell my Bill of Rights for a paycheck, my native freedom for some kind of dream.

I slide into reverie. Of when I was ten. My favorite aunt, Ann, is buying me my first pair of nylons, Round the Clock, with pale pink slip and garter belt accessories from the sixth floor of G. Fox & Company. I gawk at the saleswoman as she deftly stuffs money into the hollow flank of a stainless steel cylinder, turning its top counterclockwise until the side closes, silently, like espionage; as she balances it upright beneath the lip of a narrow portal until suction snatches it upward into an apparently labyrinthine vacuum-tube system of cylinders rattling by each other in a continuous exchange of energy and currency.

O, Houdini, show me that false wall between company and country. Slip me through this packaging, of me. For I have fallen through the safety net spell of belief in this marketplace of trickology. Please help, help us all, Harry.
