Haiku/Gesundheit (Volume XXXVIII)

the shopping chronicles

on spending eight hours bargain-hunting
(or "that's about six hours longer than i can handle")

i'm not catholic
but jude is my patron saint
please no more shopping

on purchasing something at j crew for the first time
(or "the fashion industry, global warming & you")

part i
j crew puts receipts
into envelopes green like
gases... and envy

part ii
no offense but how'd
you do that without laughing?
i'd prefer gift-wrap
thoughts concerning over-priced stores

sure it's expensive
but it's sixty percent off
so i'll take two please
on receiving my online order from rei

times like these i wish
our winter was less mild
have boots, will snowshoe

One more shopaholic,
Isn’t it fun to swipe for credit?
Guilty no more.

Sounds like you were in Commerce Hell. My condolences.

Congrats on the REI stuff, though. You could always move somewhere that has more snow shoeing opportunities.
