Lunch Poem

The e-mail kiosks lock
on to me as I
cruise the Mall. My exo-
skeleton ā€” beltbuckle,
glasses, the tips of
my shoes, even the
decidedly feminine gold chain
I have around my wrist ā€”
lights up with messages. They
are not for me; I am being
mistaken for someone
else. But there are no
shops in this part of
the strip & Iā€™m a snoop be-
sides so I read them with
half an ear, even though
my heart is in the jeweller
looking through their
recipes for eloquence &
my soul is in the toystore
set on rich dark fruit
cake laced with brandy.
