Feminine Shedding #WWUC @NWCreativeUnion

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.

Joanne Elliot provided the amazing photography
of her husband, Charles Elliot as inspiration for our creativity.
