b kwik

running through b kwik
sweaty hair
football gear
spikes clicking across
Imperial tile

tore up turf
in a trail behind me
grabbing milk
grabbing bread

dad waits in the car
window down
WKBW on the radio

the strip plaza
sited to block competition
ever since the Super Duper
exploded under suspicious
circumstances

priced for convenience
priced for the working class

and sometimes
at checkout
a treat
just for me
