Bored Husband

‘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
‘Bored Husband.’

I turn to check the price tag.
On the flip side reads …
‘Not for Sale.’
