• Lena Drake


She calls me

lady as she

takes my order

as if I was

someone to be

respected. I am

not, neither are

the men with

their red faces

and bloated bellies.

She sees us as

she wishes we

were. Ladies and

Gentlemen on

important business.

So are we, work

horses in a different

way. Taking orders

and pretending

we respect those

who bark. Cogs

to the greater

machine. 2 weeks

to believe it means

something to make

money for someone

else. Labor for

someone else. Take

orders from men

with red faces and

bloated bellies. As

if we couldn’t stop.

As if we can’t

stop. What’s your

name? She asks

smiling under

the sun. Lena.

She thinks it’s

beautiful. I think

she’s beautiful.
