Week 27- Heather Ouellette-Cygan

Posted: October 6, 2011 in Heather Ouellette-Cygan, Week 27

Deli Counter

My reassurance clenched

In my palm, a pink

Ticket – number 67 – I

 

Listen to orders

Of those who’ve come

Before me. Fat-filled

 

Luncheon meats, pounds

Of Land-o-Lakes American

Cheese.  And the stench

 

Of seafood swims over

From the fish counter.

A cacophony of large

 

Levis, Vera Bradley granny

Bags, and impatience

Pushes me under.
