Type, edit, revise

Slant focus to meet

Requirements, expectations

Redefine skills

Chisel universal elements

Embedded within

Specific career path

By conviction barred


Orange jumpsuit gone

Numbered scrubs behind her

She dresses for imagined success

In clothes of her former life

Walks with purpose

Cloud obscured yet remembered

Irons away storage’s wrinkles

Equally frantic doubts

Voice quavering despair

Moves, speaks with confidence

Once her stock in trade

Selling, with authority

Her reinvented self
