The Pitch

The pitch would be a challenge
She, a novice, new to the firm
presenting to a seasoned
board of directors

She steeled herself,
applied her greasepaint
paused in the wings of the board room
then entered stage left for
her first performance

The NaPoWriMo prompt for day 22 is to write a poem that invokes a specific object as a symbol of a particular time, era, or place.
