pride and joy, going
once, twice, sold to the lady
who can hold her own

on a busy city street, day
in and day out, making ends meet

across every lake,

across every lake,
there is a bench
and the promise
of a seat
when you
are ready

privilege is keeping

within every hour,

within every hour,
there are eleven minutes
that take flight, nearly

a fifth of a minute that
sits still, one-eighth in running shoes

on the elevator
ride down, no
one says a word –
thirty-five stories
ignored, we stay
on schedule –
but i can tell
your ears just
popped, too
