Why I am Seeking Employment by Matthew Rabito



will always be buzzing

along, let’s

visit it in between rounds of our fantasy,

poke it with a stick.

i imagine it moves like

JELLO, always moving,

never leaving, that is

we can be sure it’s where we left it.


Daniel Arsham and

Manuel Neri, suspended in

JELLO next to Rembrandt next to Schubert.

way down there, the cave painters

of Lascaux, next to Banksy, really anyone

is in the JELLO including every

3rd grade macaroni artist and GOD

himself, and the makers of JELLO.


we look at all this for some time

and we return to work

happy on our lunch break to eat

something besides JELLO.
