Poem 314 – Working Girl, the movie & me

Working girl, the movie & me

joan cusack red-dyed & teased
lips lisped & shoulders padded to height
Coffee? Tea? Me?

melanie griffith blonde bombshell & smart
mouse-voiced & lion-hearted to height
I’ve got a head for business and a bod for sin

a handsome businessman
a nasty boss
a broken leg
& lies

made me feel
empowered
motivated

& even in this exhausted state
when my head wants sleep & my bod wants forgiveness
the movies fill this working girl with silver
