She steps into this world
Of shoes, bags, clothes,
This empire of everything

Like a model on a catwalk,
She strides on its
Newly polished floors,
Surveying her choices.

Each window display
Screams for her attention,
Draws her in, pulls her,

Traps her in a black hole.

She tries that dress on,
Those sexy heels,
And oh, that bag,
She has never seen it before.

Oh, so many finds
In the upper floors,
Earrings, necklace, sunglasses,
The perfect shade of lipstick.

Her heart is never content,
Even as she dishes out bills
And leaves with a dozen goodie bags
In each hand.

Her feet feel sore
After hours of walking,
But she’s bound to come back
Maybe tomorrow?
