vacuum

She sat with her arms

folded neatly in front of

her new, aching breasts

 

 

and her eyes followed

the small, brown women around

as they scrubbed her floors

She bit her lip and

the women uncoiled grey cords

from their twin vacuums

 

 

and she hoped the noise

wouldn’t wake her small, blonde boy

from his morning nap
