shopkeeper's wife



what is the story
behind the sudden change
in her demeanor

last dregs of lipstick
cannot disguise worry lines
suddenly arrived


avoiding my gaze
her downcast eyes perplex me
gone the cheery smile


here's your change sweetheart
the usual phrase comes whispered
she's somewhere else now
