Market Basket Transformation

Shopping can be such a chore
unless you think of it as taking part
in the performance of an intricate dance
up and down the aisles with your fellow shoppers,

a sacred ritual in which the stuff that will
become us is chosen. Savor the occasion —
don’t be so impatient as you wait
for the deli guy to call your number.
