lady with a wart

by August 21, 2018 0 comments

you see a lady
in a red bandana
turning a corner
wart on her nose

in a busy
wall street
intersection

you’ve been
through 3
board meetings

and meanwhile
your wife demands
you make a stop
at the cleaners

on the way home
to pick up
a white blouse

two of your kids
are down
with the flu

and there are
bills piling and
weekend visitors expected

and dinner’s ready…

and at midnight
you dream of
that lady.
