She remains there, beneath life, under a heavy world.
Kids, events, age, career, household, her man,
she holds it all, on her shoulders,
in a labored squat.
He looks for the perfect polo, the best cologne,
he drives a shiny car into the sunset of career advancement,
he thinks he has it all, in his future,
because maybe, he doesn’t know squat.
