I knew I should have walked away
But I just couldn’t
I knew I should have negotiated the price
But I just wanted it so badly
I knew I could have found a cheaper one
But I just wanted to take it home
I had to buy it
Regardless of the price
It felt like joy, holding it in my hand
It felt like Christmas, packing it in my bag
Carrying it out with me
Into the streets, into my home.
Thank you for reading.
