Dejected 2

She returned at least three
part-time job applications randomly this week,
no call backs.
A birthday arrives,
only one call.
A disability decision arrives,
two unfavorable decisions.
On Friday, they practice
the bus stop dance.
Dance teacher Maxine
gives another interesting word,
feeling dejected waiting while in dance.
