SENRYU STEW # 5: Supermarket Blues


















my supermarket

boasts low prices everyday--

consumer fraud





spaces in the parking lot

already occupied---

shopping carts





emerging from the aisle

with my cart piled high...

T-boned

  1. Keep your eyes peeled on the lower racks of those shopping carts in the parking lot. I've found lots of goodies that way, including a case off beer! (WIN!)

  3. I'm not big on grocery shopping either, but I will keep a better eye on the lower racks of those carts in the parking lot.

  4. I find there are less and less appeal in grocery shopping - those shopping carts are never clean and everyone cheats on the 10 items or less line - that's life, I suppose

    have a lovely day.

  6. I was in there just today and scored a small air conditioner for $88. Hol-ee cow! First summer in twelve years that I will not be completely fried in hellfire heat. Who knew relief could be had so cheaply? (I am SUCH a slow study! I will have it all figured out about three days before I croak!)

  7. THINGY,
    Wherever it is, they must have a lot of drunk customers!

    SHERRY,
    Maybe we should ask where YOU shop, to find a deal like that!

  14. Stalking the supper indeed. Really loved this poem Timoteo - and I liked that the title 'Supermarket Blues' is so unexpected. Supermarkets are seemingly the polar opposite to the blued - sharp edged, well-lit, colourful and pop-music-sound-tracked. And yet, it works!
