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


shoplifting

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
