Woman steps out
with phone held to ear

“I’ll be home in 3 hours”

She waits her turn
flipping through
Glamour Magazine

“Tressa is ready for you”

Mixing bowls, clips
Tiny foil squares
on her head

Chatter, laughter
Young and old
Passing the allotted time

With no sign of gray
she returns home
once again

Prompt: Hiding. You could be hiding.
Someone else could be hiding.
Something could be hidden.
Or maybe there could even be a hidden meaning
