Getting a Raise

I was a soap opera heroine
the good

white witch

ingenuous and well-meaning
mainly.  I was caught up

in a chronic condition
of stepping forward
over the abyss.

Their names were

mainly interchangeable.

Mine were as predictable
as bought pies.  Feeling the pain

stirring soup on camera picking up
something at the deli on her way
home witch.  The pay was less than

the black witch’s.
