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.’
