Screen Shopping - A Friday Night Poem


I poured myself a wine and
perused black leather
boots on the internet,
knee-high thigh-high
mid-calf
ankle
hungry work
I ate
cracker
after
cracker of
thick creamy blue
on Seasameals
I surfed boots until that wedge of cheese was
gone
and I needed another wine to
settle into Shorty Street on the widescreen
my shopping cart holding
one item
539 dollars US Italian knee highs
with exquisite stitching detail,
softest leather inner and outer,
flat heels but oh-so-stylish
will take you from
day time to night
time on the sofa
but I didn't click check-out
I clicked the laptop lid down on
those European toes that
will never-go-out-of- fashion
and turned up The Street
in my sheepskin slippers
