Caveat Emptor

She is having such difficulty

finding the exact gadget

to froth milk for her lattes.

She’s taken a stand:

no more exorbitant fees

at the local coffee shop.

On her brand new iPhone

she pulls up reviews:

such a dilemma!  As she revels 

in this quandary, an alarm

reminds her to take her pills,

the ones that soothe and mask

all the messages her body

is sending her. She simply has

no time to read 

the signal fires, not

with all these looming

decisions.  If she orders 

in the next five minutes,

she’s guaranteed delivery

by tomorrow, that magical time

when she can purchase

her own salvation, with just

one click.

Inspired by The Daily Word Prompt: froth
