Shopper

by Majella Haugh

Thumping chest, breathless
on next, gem hour!
tanzanite blues, pearly whites
ALL YOURS
for just 16 raised digits
T I M E sensitive
tick tick tick

ticker scrolling..
September Specials!
Tuesday is Shoe Day!
Christmas Must Haves!

on and on
2am, wine glass in hand
beside vomiting drawers
& bulging rafters
struggling to pay the minimum monthly

but still

totally empty
