Atef Ayadi


Shopping - Poem by Atef Ayadi

I went shopping
In Wal-Mart.
I aimed to buy a woman,
Or love;
A woman soup
Or love soup;
A woman receipt
Or a love receipt;
Something that makes
My sex drive go away
Or cool it down.
Something I can find on the shelves
Or in the deli section.
Like beans,
Milk,
Juice,
Eggs,
Or sliced beef.
