IN THE SHELTER OF A FERN

Waiting tables
at the corner cafe,
making peanuts
compared to the job
she scored working
in the corner office,
her cabinets are bare.

What’s happening?

she cries.
Unable to cope,
no longer sturdy
in her own thoughts,
splintered ideas
guide her as she faces
her fractured world.

Closing her eyes,
she escapes
to the shelter of a fern.

Inspired by The Sunday Whirl’s Prompt #79: recommend, happening, cabinet, cafe, shelter, sturdy, handle, peanuts, fern, job, guide, score, and face. I used all but “recommend.”
