Window Shopping

CL Bledsoe

Pale, white, and ugly
as a newborn bullet
wound before it bleeds, he hides
in the cookie aisle
behind a bag of macaroons.
Something in his eyes
is lapping at the stock girl's face
like a dog at a bowl of water.

She bends to stock a box of crackers.
He stares at the rounded curve
of her jeans, stretched
over scrawny skin, door locked, phone
unplugged just in case anyone calls;
the ring might slap him awake,
jiggly and crying
into the sunset of the world.
