Business Woman Morning

Walking out

Cold morning under the darkened sky

Shiny shoes stand out

Against slick grey pavement



Closing garage door

And going out


The car

With electric motor

Quietly speeds out of the neighborhood

Houses stare

With warm yellow eyes

Twinkling as

Owners with coffee cups

Wake up to let the cat out


Taking the exit

To the Freeway

Turning up the radio

For the morning show


Heels clicking in the dim light

Under street lights

Walking up to the door

In the skyscraper

Inserting the key in the lock

Greeting an empty office


Calling her daughter

Suited arm

Reaches for the phone

As the street light flickers out

And the clock changes to

6 AM
