Got Milk?

image borrowed from tess

Got Milk?

at the checkout
by Mennonites,

I am conspicuous
in white linen,
bright MAC red.

One in a bonnet
that could double
as a dinner napkin,

tugs five, gallon
containers of milk
to the conveyer,

glances sideways
at my Chardonnay,
latest Vanity Fair.

I imagine after,
she chugs a drink
in a Fairlane truck,

carefully takes
out the bobby pins,
blots foam from her lip.
