Darker skies

Everything stacked neatly
the girl at TKmaxx smiles
sweetly as she asks me for
identification,
I tell her it’s me,
but that, she cannot see and
asks again for some form of
identity.
I point to my name on the credit card
and say,
it’s me, look, not very hard is it?

she calls the store detectives
but not what I called them
when they handcuffed me.
