Thrift Shopping

rows of rainbows,
color coded
mountais of mark-downs
("Prices so low, you can't resist!")
Later at home, sore wrists
sensitive fintertips
flicking stapled tags away
exclaiming over money saved-
all these brand names
so inexpensive
later, silently pensive
memories of wanting,
not getting
watching you mother,
not letting
her buy what we don't need
"How much are these?"

I honestly didn't know how to wrap it up. I could've gone on and on, you know, but I wanted to make it somewhat short.
