Lists

Then there are people in supermarkets
Intent on their lists, looking for completion
Looking for just one more thing.

Is it shampoo that will make life smooth and bouncy?
Is it skin cream that will soothe away years?
Is it the lost chance? The different twist to a day?

What do you seek with your head down?
Searching a list, the shelves the aisles the stores
For something —

Maybe anything
To change the controlled hell
That is actually all of the list.
