You have to write out an application,
and attach your curriculum.
It's irrelevant how long you've been alive
Better keep your curriculum short.
You must be concise and select the events,
Change landscapes into addresses
And half-remembered dates into remembered ones.
Of all your loves your married one is enough,
andonly mention living children.
It matters more who knows you than who you know.
List journeys made but only if abroad.
Of belonging to something, but never say why.
Decorations bestowed without any motivation.
Write as if you never speak to yourself
And you avoid yourself.
Skim over cats, dogs and birds,
bric-a-brac from the past, friend and dreams.
Cost over worth
And the title rather than the contents.
Better give your shoe size, than reveal where
the person you're mistaken for goes.
Put a photograph in with your ears showing.
Form is important, not what you feel.
What can you hear?
The sound of the paper shredding machine.
