Entry Level Exit Money never loves what we do for it. A gray handshake assures us we’ll hear something by Monday. My thumb is blue from circling want-ads. The elevator drops us from the spectacular view. A cousin of Elvin Bishop’s bass player leads me across the parking lot to the Milwaukee River. I wade in hoping a fish, or a frog, will brother me, but I am left, wet, with people.
