Out shopping

I didn’t want anything from her,
So I smiled
The sun beaming from my heart,
While she scanned the icecream
I had bought for my wife.
She looked up at me knowing
That in that moment she was free.
The man packing the bread
Into the recycled bag was free too.
I looked at him as though
The world had exploded from his eyes.
And the people scurrying past
On the way to their cars
Had lost their selves.
And then the whole world knew what it was
In that moment
To stop wanting.
