Never On Valentine's Day
by Nicole Taylor
It was easy and convenient
but never shop on
Valentine's Day
for yourself when single.

I went to a quiet lane
at my south Salem Walmart
with my many purchases
watching a few customers.

A young man ahead
buys two boxes of
ultra thin Trojan condoms.

Another young man behind
waits with two medium
colorful bouquets.

Another young man far ahead
walks out with
many mylar balloons,
some misshapen.
some reading Happy Birthday,
and my birthday was two days ago.

I've heard to not shop
when hungry or at
busy times, when
socially disabled.
