Supermarket Tabloids

Next to green leaf produce in the supermarket, two lovers sprout a passionate kiss. I admire their public display of affection. I am not alone. A young girl notices the couple from her seated position in the shopping cart. I watch for the girl’s reaction. Full of inquisitiveness, the girl looks to her mother for answers.
“Mommy, look at that man and that woman.” she pointed. “Can you kiss like that?”
The mother strokes her daughter from temple to pony tail. “Darling, that is how you got here.”
Even surrounded by nothing but vegetables, the world is an oyster.
