JOB HUNTING, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: Is it references you want
Last Line: Is my reference, my only one.
Subject(s): Job Hunting; Poetry & Poets; Whitman, Walt (1819-1891)

Is it references you want?
Will Walt Whitman serve as my credential?
You'll find him in the library,
he'll be glad to talk,
and he will say what you will want
to hear.

We have known each other
almost from the start. We were
like one flesh, but that's for him
to tell you. What I need simply
is money for a doctor and Walt
is my reference, my only one.
