take a letter, maria(n)

what if
when he said time for dictation
or i'll have some coffee
what if i just
up and
run out?
blow this taco
stand, as they say? snagging
post-it notes, postage stamps, staplers
and tape?
better
yet if i hurl that coffee cup
scalding hot starbucks burns
he'd not forget
blisters
soon. i
am smarter than
these bozos, what am i
even doing here, stagnating
angry
silent
complicit in my oppression?
snap out of it sister
ride your bus pass
outta
town now
find your mountain
and a good love, linger
warm air on your breast til you are
renewed.
then you
can fly down singing madrigals
on the wing. then start on
some writing of
your own.
