The lady in the lamp store

She works in a lamp store
even though she doesn’t need the money

gets out of bed every morning
rides her old bike to work
smiling into the wind
winks at the bus driver
he tips his hat

can’t wait to unlock
turn the switch
stand all day
under the pendants

she laughs when she talks
tells the old man
a crystal chandelier
will make everything right

she winks at him too
but he believes her anyways

she says look at me
I can’t stop smiling
I am old too
an ancient star
amongst a hundred moons.
