A Good Day for a Poet



This morning, I spent $25 for a contest fee and $22 for a subscription, plus postage, paper, gas, etc.

That was the money OUT.

But then IN my mailbox I received this semester's mileage supplement for adjunct faculty.

That's $288.

So, the way poets figure things, I am WAY AHEAD today.

No comments from economists, please.

You get adjunct mileage!? I taught at three different colleges in CA and drove around like a lunatic but never received a dime for the road.

Yes, mileage money.

Hope College isn't a bad gig for adjuncts.

I think in order to count that mileage money as IN, you'd need to save it and ride your bike to work.
