Extravagance is defined as delivery pizza on Friday night
instead of a grocery box

She has a practical car, and sensible clothes
working within a budget
flying under the radar

Her pantry is filled with generic groceries
off brand peanut butter and white bread

Some nights she sits on her twice upholstered couch
flipping through catalogs, dreaming of silk
but they are just dreams

She knows better than to expect more and
has learned it's safer to expect less
