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
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.
