shopping with no money

25 Apr

the metal detectors and blinding lights of walmart.
a lady cooks hot dogs to the right;
75 cents a dog.
she smiles.
i slip past the t-shirt racks, miracle protein aisles,
perfect hair gels in the dozens,
toaster oven blender crock pot paradise,
clocks without batteries,
inflatable rafts, ping pong paddles,
Dr. Scholl.
batteries, camcorders,
men and women in blue vests.
lots of other men and women.
i forgot what i was going to say?
