time for my #whatpainsyouproject –
a poem for an anonymous reader and their pain…
‘your mom won’t have this’
the store isn’t as crowded these days
still a labyrinth navigating the aisles
without benefit of a hand.
it would be so much easier
to rot with the rest of the produce
but you were taught to dismiss
those who seek to shelf you
watch as you grow stale.
