expression of success
transacted major business deal
big career move
Tailored, pressed suit,
the perfect impression.
Brief case open to paperwork;
ready to start executive job.

Faint traces of lipstick,
fingerprints pressing in,
smudging the glass.
Golden brown liquid,
sharp edges of lees.
cutting the surface.

Splashes reach up
marring perfect make-up,
glossing over achievements,
indenting around eyes,
across cheeks,
touching the woman’s face.
