Her eyes red, tired, and itchy.
Too many hours between screens today.
Eating bites of pizza between the work.
Finally, the call comes to an end,
Summaries sent out, the rest can wait.
Buzz, buzz, buzz. There’s no escape.
More things to do, responses, follow up.
Finally, she shuts her laptop,
checking out from work for a bit.
She dims the lights, rubs her eyes,
And curls up under a blanket.
A few minutes of relaxation and laughs;
Soon rest will come, if the phone doesn’t ring.
