How to Fuck Yourself

I noticed failure and it puzzled me.
A person I respect and know is smart
decided to restrict her tendency
to buy another purse. I watched her start.
I heard the resolution to be free
of sales for half a year. No shopping cart
would tempt her, on the screen or in the store.
She lasted 40 days and bought some more.

It wasn’t an addiction – that was clear.
It didn’t rise to be a test of will,
and reason didn’t get to have a voice.
My friend shook off restraining atmosphere,
rebelling that she’d let no rule instill
obedience. She flounced and made her choice.
