Only $9.95

I bought red sunglasses at the grocery store today.
They showed me a crimson-tinted world;
I liked it better all strawberry-smeared.
As though I had eaten a cherry Popsicle
and licked the sky;
or dropped my watermelon lolli into the lake--
thrown the clouds into my wash with that one rogue sock,
turning them a searing shade of magenta.
I swam in a sea of ruby textures.

Happiness sold in stores.
Only $9.95.
