EMPTY MALL
(5/24/16)


Brother Bollocks
greatly prefers
surfing the web
to setting foot
in crowded
stores

even
uncrowded
stores

having
to converse
with

maneuver
around

avoid
other people

is all
so taxing

so tiresome

and now
so unnecessary

Brother Bollocks
points

clicks

hides
in the darkness
if a delivery arrives
while he is
home

cautiously
cracks
the door

quickly
retrieves
any waiting
package

then battens
the hatches
once again

an internet
hermit

shopping
in isolation

happy
that human
technology
has delivered
him
from humanity
