For a work trip

To Austin, Texas

Isn’t what you would call


No vintage car

Just a plain work truck

No fancy luggage

Just a truck bed filled

With a custom forklift extension

And the trailer

Hitched behind me

Isn’t laden

With dresses of Tulle

All you will find

Is an assortment

Of carpentry tools

No stilettos or

Makeup can be seen

Just a pair of work boots

Tee shirt, jeans and

A tube of sunscreen


I long for a day

I can dress up in heels

Put on some makeup

And go for a leisurely drive

With someone I love

But that day

Is not
