I memorized this in high school as I needed eight more lines to recite for
a class project - even the teacher laughed - I think about it every so

i think that this poem is just another masterpiece of Parker's. her sarcasm
is what makes her work so great, though the meaning of this morbid poem is
so sad.

her poems always end in an unexpected fashion. someday it'll then be
predictable but till then, i love her works!

Parker completely exposes herself in Resume. She expresses such naked
pathos and longing that is so bittersweet. It is a tragedy that a woman
capable of such lucid expression ahould have been so morose and mired in
depression and hopelessness.

I have this poem tattooed on my forearm, over some old razor scars.
