My version of late night shopping (a poem)

Among the things I’m looking to replace are the refrigerator and the living room furniture. I also figure I should get a carpet cleaner, so I can go at my own pace, rather than hiring somebody to do it and having to empty entire rooms all at once. (Not to mention that if I’m not going to replace the carpet right away, I should at least make sure it’s clean.)

up late
looking for solutions
constantly changing my mind
because that’s what I do
whether I need to or not

And, wouldn’t you know, in the end
I always go back to my first choice
