the mall

walking the mall

just as the doors open

for the staff

early birds

in the small a.m.

ghost dancing the window shopping

& the delights of a freshly scrubbed

marble floor

first person to use

in to the toilets

servicios

senors hombres caballeros

m’sieurs gents herren

what have you

reflected pale in the bright mirrors

hoping the coffee shop is open

put some cheer in these cheeks

& the peace

before the storm

before the canned music

people

is all yours
