oh no she didn’t

They close self checkout
Right at the start of the Sunday evening shoppers
Throngs of people
Picking up things
In a place where sixteen lanes
Are available (for our inconvenience)
As ten are forever closed

Folks abound
Strangers threatening to roll over toes
If you don’t get out of their way
Frenetic in their rush to get home
Cook dinner for the kids
Or perhaps
Merely purchasing

That unnecessary second flat screen
So that time can be filled
Picture-in-picture
As the world turns a new page
