    late november afternoons
    on the twelfth floor
    saturdays will always taste
    like tobacco. floor polish,

    she spends hours
    opening and closing the drawers
    the dust rests on the glass case
    like the lake
    after a brief snow

    some girls, they fight
    hearts pounding
    they dream mexico,
    oranges, azure waters.
    oak trees

    other girls
    lay down in warm wax
    & holding their breath
    they wait
    wait for the pins

    the imagery in this is great.
    nicely written.
