    dotsUtterly ashamed and alonedots

    I found beauty in a convenience store
    Hidden in a corner, passed out on a shelf
    Totally subdued by volatile substances
    Exposing flesh
    I instantly recognized the barcode
    Tattooed on the back of her neck
    The price was right
    So I tried to put her in my shopping cart
    There was not enough room for her
    And she just wouldn't wake up
    Maybe screaming would have made her move
    But the store policy implied absolute silence
    I started poking her and pulling on her hair
    The surveillance cameras caught me
    And a salesman arrived, to inform me
    That no tampering with the goods was allowed
    I abandoned her and quickly left the store
    Utterly ashamed and alone

      first of all, thanks for the comments on "green" and yes, this is a different approach...but so so clever...i love the use of the convenient store as local for what happens in the poem...excellent analogy...
    and then getting kicked out of the store for tampering with the goods...lol

    this makes me want to read more of your work, and i shall...immediately...

      Haha..I like it. Its original, kind of dark, and humorous. It seems like you just let it flow from you. Sweetness.

      i found this intriguing and original, almost comic in a way, yet sad for obvious reasons. to buy love from a shelf, or even something approaching it, cannot be done... as of yet, until those personal robot manufacturers in japan start upping the ante... but i digress.

    it seems many can't read between the lines here...

    this poem although has it strong points loses me at soem point.

      What on earth were you shopping for?

    Good write, I love the way you described the whole expiriance, and I love the line about the barcode.

      mmm interesting.. umm I'm not sure what you are implying here. You've left me wondering what exactly you are writing about... mmm everything fits at first it didn't seem like it was going to but I get it all. Just not aware of the underline meaning
