Modern Woman

The little girl said "I want to be a modern woman when I grow up" and so...
she grew and grew and grew
a managed her way into a classroom
traipsing  in with silver toned pumps and flower-print cashmere sweaters
feeding her students store-bought brownies for rewards
walking home after dark
to feed her cat
and read her books
off her cell-phone
drinking tea
herbal tea
from water heated to a boil in 60 seconds
at the touch of a microwave button
