TRICK OR GROCERIES
(10/31/15)


she was
leaning against
the wall
near the entrance
of the supermarket

smoking
a cigarette

wearing
a very revealing
witch costume

Elvira
Mistress of the Dark
would blush

she made
eye contact
with him
from 20 yards
away
even though
there were other
men closer

she spotted
a potential sucker
instantly

"I'm cold

I'm lonely

take me
home
with you"

she pouted
when he was
within
hearing range

he hesitated
just long enough
to bring
a smile

"come on"

she said

"I'm really
good"

he imagined
her
naked

then quickly
imagined her
angry

screaming

demanding
something

anything

everything

age
does bring
a certain amount
of perspective

"no thanks"

he told her

"I really
need
some pop tarts"

he headed
through
the electronic
door

"fucking
faggot"

was her
reply

he continued
to the produce
section

a hand basket
in front
of his pathetic
erection
