Business Woman Morning

Walking out

Cold morning under the darkened sky

Shiny shoes stand out

Against slick grey pavement

.

Quietly

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
