place became of importance
after not having nothing a while
back then
so moving on
i tell you about my situation back then
she called me in gave me a talking to
a difficult situation
i balanced the books
kept them neatly
sat at the desk obediently 
listened to her & her manager 
though I did not understand 
the chatter 
liked the restaurant staff
counted in & out like they
the next morning I went in
to find another girl at my desk
in the talking to me

she had sacked me & I did
not understand 
I had nowhere to go
now I value my place
yet often do not understand 
ask for things in writing
to read over.
and over
