Pathmark Perversity - New York

Cucumbers, celery and stem-vine tomatoes
were hobnobbing with my Russett potatoes.
Pears and plums and one Georgian peach
winked at the Wisk and Snuggled the bleach.
Pretzels and popcorn and the Tostitos chips
ogled in awe as Meyer's bacon strips stripped!
Mr. Clean and Mrs. Dash espied a risqued art - 
when double-clipped coupons tainted the cart!

    Not only can I understand the other forms of poetry I can't spell either. Handle is the proper word, God Bless Cile
