Romance and Webshops

19 Sep

The husband drags
with a flick of the wrist,
a bike of black steel
onto a shopping list.

The husband notes the bike is a gift,
he pays,
gets up,
walks away.
The shop clerk stays behind,
silently – nodding almost.

After a day or three
the clerk and husband meet,
at the husband and wife’s house.

The clerk hands her the bike
tied in ribbons
for their anniversary.

[based on a true story]
