working girl

and here in the hours before

i go to work sitting perhaps

reading listening to music

(and there is inside me a

song to be written and sung

on the way home in the early

morning darkness) and feeling

deep down a quiet happiness

for people in and out of my life

watching malachi curled on

the carpet dozing and me in my

yellow sneakers leaving soon
