Supermarche stank

French local supermarche

early in the am

have that peculiar stank

& at first

I thought mebbe

it’s the cheeses

those strange half wood boxes

round shallow

full of squidgy stuffs

mebbe it’s the local fruits

potatoes covered in dark earth

but no

the truth as ever

always more prosaic

the staff use the toilettes early

before the public come in

I saw this through the windows

nose pressed against the glass

one morning with the dawn

as I waited to buy

my pain de raisin & chocolat

tho’ my appetite

dwindled some

as I waited
