Death in a Department Store (college)
The creature died
On the top shelf of the toy section.
Hitting the ground,
He splattered blood and perfect childhood gore
On the Tinkertoys and Barbie’s New Fashion Hair.
No customers seemed to notice,
But eventually a worker walked into Aisle 8
Mopped him up and carted him away.
His killer, seeing this,
Turned and shuffled over to Aisle 20 (automotive supplies)
Squeaking in his new Italian dress shoes.
They were one size too big
But he was growing into them.
