Observations at a Quilt Show

April 1, 2014


bespectacled women
scrutinize merchandise
on display before them

focusing simultaneously
on both quality and
lowest price possible

they stalk deals with the patience
and tenacity of a hunter striving
to bring down big game

the few men that I see
accompanying these women
are an intrepid breed

they are stoic and patient
and they follow their women
dutifully and doggedly

they nod in agreement
and ruminate over any
comment their wives make

some act as Sherpas
packing supplies and
or bagged trophies

supportive and faithful
some may even be
credit-card bearers
