Shopping malls and market finds are sites of great commotion.
They thrive on hype and slick techniques and tactics of promotion.
They are keen on chicanery that brings you in to buy.
You simply cannot wait to get your portion of the pie.
Pizza Huts and Burger Kings vie for your attention
if you seek a little break to ease the shopping tension.
But you must know the lingo that goes with hot new styles.
The modern world depends on more than simply fashion’s wiles.
When you see a friend’s dope shoes as well as her new hat,
you know enough to call them goat and not to call them phat.
Prompts today are market finds, keen, technique, chicanery and promotion. I might even try to squeeze in some prompts from Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Her prompts today are: “hat,” “hit,” “hot,” and “hut.” Image by Allef Vinicius on Unsplash, used with permission.
