occupation! He spit the word out like it was a curse, grown bitter from the grind of his labor.

nice short...could read this a couple ways...occupation more in the war time sense and prisoner...or just a man that has been worn down a bit and looks around to see what he's got for it...

This read to me like- 'occupation?'- the word being spat out...like the work on question is MUCH more than that

I thought of coffee grinds, when I read the line about the grind. I hate when they get in my coffee too! :)

Love how the words grab each reader in a unique way.
More than an a job, or a prisoner, or just worn a way with time.
Charles, per the coffee remark, we do have a "Daily Grind" coffee shop, though grinds in your cup are far from pleasant!

Interesting approach...very short and concise but also effective.
