–I just don’t agree with the whole premise really.
–That a product, any product, no matter how rare,
unique or expensive, no matter how lovingly-made
by local organic elves paid a living wage
in handmade gold pieces bearing the inscription

–I get your drift, Sue. Back to the premise part.
–I don’t think that any product will make me a better person
or reveal me to be one of rarified, superior taste,
or make me a better member of the in-crowd!
–Can I help you, Madame?
–You were first, Sue.
–I’d like two of the Scottish lobsters, two pounds
of the Nova Scotia Swordfish, and do you still
have any of the Alaskan red king crab?
–Nice seeing you, Sue, coming to hot yoga tonight?
