As days go
this has gone.

It was Wednesday
which used to be
half-day closing
but
not anymore,
the store is always open.

The thinking is,
it’s business,

gee whiz
gong shopping
is
like show biz
waiting for the curtain to rise
special offers on all aisles
and an
unexpected lifetime in the
baggage area.

we are the excess,
forfeit, and five feet
from the
exit,

I’m a calamity
get me out of here.
