Eco-Friendly Guide on the Counter

Somewhere in another city
a sex toy resale shop opens.

The owner baked chocolate chip cookies
for visitors at the opening.

She hired a young boy to place fliers
under neighborhood windshield wipers.

She took half page ads out
in all three alternative newspapers.

A section of the store
is equivalent to
a bookshop’s rare book room.

A sign by the register notes
one percent of all sales
are donated to the food bank.
