Extravagance is defined as delivery pizza on Friday
instead of one from 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
