She complains of
never enough--
old debts coalesce
like black oil
floating on otherwise
unperturbed waters.

She sometimes trips
over high-heeled shoes
that the dog has pulled
from their box
and left pock-marked and smelly
in the corner.

She is meticulous about
her ever-widening ass
and measures it daily
in end-to-end
plastic-coated capsules
filled with empty promises.

But she swings it like a queen
as she hisses "Get a job!"
and clutches her purse
in French-manicured nails
out of fear.
This is a poem.
