Pursuing modest adventures,
the shopper commends the shopkeeper.
Slatted sunlight brightens labels
on an excess of choice.
Vegetables hold colour
like that hyperrealist painting
of an industrial complex.
The shopper might be
the hyperrealist worker
in his suit of silver foil.
We’re buying cumin and pepper.
In the aftermath of small change,
there's no need for usual anxieties.
That’s it. The deal is done.
