Too Much Shopping 

late morning grogginess
swaying on the platform
earbuds plugged in
connected to fast moving
melody replacing lack
of strong caffeine

waiting for a metro in DC
weekend scheduling slow
giving me time to blog
crowd is surprisingly light
at the Crystal City stop

on the way to outlet store
Two hours too many later
too much shopping done
after metro ride back
to Crystal City taking
a moment at a local BBQ
looking at a thinner wallet
listening to the blues
