milk, yoghurt, carton of six eggs
olives, oranges, punnet of raspberries
French beans, carrots, tiny sack of onions
that is the grocery cart I want to have
she is the woman I want to be
not the girl whose basket always holds milk and
rolled oats and paper towels and
nothing else
not this girl that I am
