Walking Distance

every place

has one

a dead mall

this one is ours

this was where you

turned the corner

and smelled buttery

popcorn and this

is where you smelled

fresh brewed coffee

and this is

the perfume counter

that smell

of clouds of flowers

that smell of

leather and deluxe

wasted afternoons

shopping and/or


taking all of this for granted

a dead mall

means there has been progress

a dead mall

means history

the kind of history

you don't really give a shit about

lost in reverie over that one

wednesday night

when you and a couple of friends

had nothing

else to do
