once children lose themselves
near displays,
parents blurt messages
to heartfelt needs.
total damage
stillness broken by tiny
footsteps on linoleum,
and old-fashioned shapes
once dynamic and needed
assume the slope of shards
on concrete.
impeded by signs
adults tiptoe
lest earthquakes rattle,
and “break it, buy it,”
trembles nerves.
one kid captured,
another still running
down aisles
slippery with crystals.
