Consumer Report

Monday morning,
shower heads weep,
hair dryers howl,
deodorants stifle,
zippers clench teeth,
lip glosses smack,
perfumes choke,
ties hang,
front doors bang,
cars growl,
economic forecast, good.

like it!

I take it you are feeling a bit piled up in American consumerism. I'm kind of out of the loop. You made me feel greatful!

PS my word verificatrion was enertno. Somehow that just seemed appropriate.

The economic forcast as a moment in a series of events, unsincere, much less so than say, drying the hair or shutting a door, and much harder to quantify, indeed.

polona said...

Pauline said...

Well put - and such an economy of words. I like it!
