Window shopping

Tell me this:
despite the barriers we construct --
the critical voices in my head,
the determination not to shop,
the terrible economy,
the awareness of a starving child --
do shoes in a window,
handbags on a store wall,
carry so much appeal?

...not that I'd ever wear that color,
or heels that high,
or carry a purse
that wouldn't fit over my shoulder...

But still:
Don't you just love to look?
