spending spree

it is a new store,the chapel architecture

restored. i remember the day they cleaned

the stone, noisy. i was opposite with cofffee,

trying to chat. he did not seem to notice

the interruption.

they have candles, subtle shades, non drip,

yet have sold out of ragged ribbon,

a big disappointment.

i commented on the perfume downstairs, told

it was new furniture and cleaning, that is all.

checking ebay later found reams of the distressed cotton

tape i had wanted, had a minor spending spree

at seven pounds fifty.
