Morning after Valentines

The normal-looking man in the pressed tweed suit

directs the woman in the M&S uniform

to the packet of mixed fruit he believes to be in the £4 meal deal.

It is sat under a suggestive, almost sexy, red £4 sign, sure,

but its individual ticket says £2, clear as fridge lights.

The shop assistant apologises, explains how

every item in the meal deal is inidividually marked, labelled, scarred.

The man is furious, taps the sign several times, and replies

‘It’s very misleading, very very misleading,

it’s like rape, actually,

it’s like rape.’

By Charley Genever

Emerging poet from Peterborough addicted to words would like to meet similar minded folk to engage in a poetry revolution.
