Drop down,
heavy.
Weigh your responsibilities
like grocery bags
in each hand as the other numbs.
After a day of lifting
your chin,
rolling your shoulders
back,
walking steady,
holding your smile
until your makeup creases
in your skin,
all you want is some silence;
respite care for the buzz in your brain.
