Three flights down is her car.
Sedan. Four door. Twenty-one thousand miles.
She was an artist once.
The smartest dunce.
Finger paintings mostly. Never sold a finger print.
Now she works five days for fity weeks. Filing. Typing.
Her sentence is run-on.
Never noticing the tessellating artistry of her cubicle horizon.
Her T's are crossed, eyes are glazed over.
Her tears are seeded
Where the sonnets will grow.
But they hold tight to old sights.
Pupils too contricted from the monitor glow.
Three flights up is the roof.
Sky. Four clouds. Twenty one mile view.
In every direction.
