A choice made long ago
That I cannot undo

Pinstripes for pinafores
Attaché for diaper bag

Hours spent in commuter trains
Watching the frantic steps of others
Other women
Wives
Mothers

So many busy conference rooms
Traded for
Extra bedrooms and footsteps in the hallway
Late

A choice made by myself
That I would not have allowed to be made for me
