8. After Work

 — after work

I swap my corporate suit

for 

cotton jeans and an XL hoody

I slip off the pumps

and slip on

sensuous, bare feet

I trade in my keyboard 

for 

pistachio nuts and chilled Chardonnay

I close down the spreadsheet

and open up

a big, fat newspaper

I push aside the ergonomic chair

and sink in 

to my overstuffed second-hand couch 

sweetest of all

I rip off my goddamn bra

and

exhale, free at last

— after work
