severance pay

the cleaning woman
knows she is going home,
so she steals
as much jewelry as she can
carry,
cash, credit cards.
underwear
and shoes.
she takes a suitcase
too.
I see her leaving
the house
in a hurry wearing my
wife's fur
coat.
she looks at me and sighs.
I throw
her the car keys
and tell her to hurry.
your flight leaves soon.
