The pounding on the pavement
was what she hated the most;
That tocktocktocktock sound
pushed her over the edge, almost.
As soon as she stepped aside for one,
there was another to come:
Miss stroppy stropstropstropstrop
on high-heel dare
rushing to get past going nowhere.
She shuffled along gazing at windows.
She was only going to the store to get some milk –
There was no need to push.
