I felt relieved –as opposed to "at home" – when they asked not where I came from. I told them, however, where I'd had my last job at a farmland; I'd befriended my employer who was mostly brusque to my workmates and officious at best. Uphill you'd encounter a world to possibly make a nostalgia of, A place devoid of sleepwalkers and tax payers, where you might glance a Roman tomb, stray foxes, a shag shack for available genders, and you'd probably glean almonds along the way, far from the soothing crowds and fresh cowshit. You're hired, they said. We pay no taxes, either.

    Quite good. "Your hired, no taxes, we pay in cash."

    "You're fired."
