The Red Light Of Success

by T. Troy Stewart

The light turns red 
The Lexus rolls to a stop 

Sista inside of her 
gold trimmed ride 
immaculately dressed 
suit freshly pressed 

Nails sparkling like 
stars...I could see them 
and I was outside the car 

Glasses By Versace  
Teeth sparkling like ivory 
Hair organically grown... 

Phone mic in place 
briefcase open on the passenger seat 

Head bobbing 
to the digital radio 
ZZ Hill professing 
that even He can't get next to you 

Friday morning 
Payday's today... 

Everything is right 

Green turns the light... 

The sista smiles 
and winks at me... 
and she in her Lexus rolls on... 

You go gurl! 

Leaving me grinning 
and singing a old ZZ Hill song...
