She stayed in the car
For a while when she got home
Scrolling through old pictures on her phone
She looked in the window
Outline of her family
Where the headlights met the glow from the TV
Never been a smoker
She was thinking cigarettes
Just to have something besides pressure in her chest
The sky was faded Auburn
Half an hour before
Everything was dark as she walked to the door
It’s all hinging on her carrying the weight
Icy limbs etched on February grey
It makes it long & makes it hard
Everyday
She built her life on school
Kept her head in books
Close to thirty years is what it took
That straight and narrow
Nosedive to success
Didn’t leave much room for rights and lefts
White walls, long halls & elevators
No time to eat that sandwich
that she brought
Back's hurting, paper work & a reprimand
For something not her fault
It’s all hinging on her carrying the weight
Icy limbs etched on February grey
It makes it long & it makes it hard
Every day
Her old man
ain’t just another child grown old
Taking care of the boy
is his share of the load
Makes some scratch off singing songs, Never had much urgency
When he sees her down he longs
For greener currency
Coffee stains on yellow legal pad
words and phrases inked in blue and black
His dreams & needs helped along
By what she’s bringing home
It’s all hinging on her carrying the weight
Icy limbs etched on February grey
It makes it long & it makes it hard
Every day
