‘Your husband has just called
to say you can buy anything in this shop,’
the plaque reads.
But my husband stares out to sea;
examines the mainsails of catamarans
whilst I examine the ‘Just Cruisin’’
We know everything in life
carries a price tag.
Amongst the bric-a-brac
there is another plaque which reads
I turn to check the price tag.
On the flip side reads …
‘Not for Sale.’
