The Mag - Mad Women

"One minute you're on top of the world, the next minute some secretary's running you over with a lawn mower." - Joan Holloway

Unable to accept his, no!
she stacked her luggage high
her premise quite clever
she took to the top.
Her prose a critical touch
with existential poise 
of peerless fashion all to win his approval.

As each stomp of her foot
broke deep beneath his blasphemous cursing-
his NO!
hammered with mallet-like stabs
of incoherent growls of control-
and so she grinned, bursting
in uncontrollable laughter.

Yet her rousing 
sudden eruption 
of endless energy that seized 
through her pounding 
heels of determination
he bellowed again, NO!
Still unable to accept no-
she lit a match
and burned his plane ticket
she'd vacation solo.
