Daniel Haar


Job Fair

The lines too long at “Dealers,” “Pimps,” and “Hoes,”
I slunk to the stand marked “Corporate CEOs.”

In the daytime, Daniel Haar works as a lawyer in Washington, D.C. (during the pandemic, from his home in Maryland, where he lives with his wife and two children). He writes poetry in the early morning hours—before the rest of the household awakes and his work begins. His poems have appeared The Lyric, First Things, and Romantics Quarterly.
