Junk mail

She reads

The junk mail

& the flyers

For coupons

Practical

She faithfully

Tells you

What’s on sale

She likes to

Look at

The clothes

& know

The prices

Of appliances

You’d think this

Would bore you

But you

So Love

Love her

Nothing she

Ever could

When she tells

You of the

The price

Of a new

Flat-top stove

In February

You even tell

People

Lovingly:

She reads

The junk

Mail &

I so love

Her

Computers

Love

Records

One person’s junk

Another person’s

Fuel

Their treasure

Their pleasure
