The Maynard
Fall 2017

Laura Yan

for your consideration

the best class i ever took
was a negotiation workshop
where we learned to read
psychology manipulate
demands feign appeasement
with million dollar deals i
played with businessmen
aced the game and hesitate
less in emails could you
shorten the contract
increase the word rate
cut the indemnity clause
and if i joke about cancer
pin death to my lapel
please make sure
this is imagination
and curable still
