impulse buy fruits and
vegetables like they’re gum
in the check-out aisle

maybe nothing is
so soothing as the lush case
of greens, wet and cold

Express Lane<br /><br />Yes, they must have stood<br />In the wrong lane when math brains<br />Were being issued out.<br /><br />Once again they stand<br />A cart filled with groceries<br />Right in front of me.<br />
