Mara Lets Down Her Hair ~ ©Charles Elliot
Tied to a cell phone and a schedule
I played the dollar game for ten hours.
With sundown, I shed my corporate persona
like a snake crawling out of its skin.
Climbing the ladder in spiked heels
is an exhausting shuffle between
exercising my feminine intuition
and proving I have the “balls” to get things done.
All I want for the next couple of hours
is to stare into the bottom of a wine glass
to forget there is a good ole boy food chain
and let my hair down to the music of Samantha Fish.
