POEM — Overwhelmed in the Feminine Hygiene Aisle

She fumbled through the aisles

Seeking –

Relief – or a solution – she forgot which one

And continued on her

Quest

Now – nearly, quite overwhelmed

With choice

Excess

Or attainment

Or some unspeakable truth

 

Pushing past plastic packaging

A litany of choices

 

And picking up one – and then another –

She wondered how she’d ever make her decision

 

Wings – or flaps – full length – or mini – supersized – for maximum – coverage – or comfort – discrete – or plush-filled – with strings – or none –

 

Picking up packages

And staring at fine print

She knew

It all came down to

 

The same damned thing.
