Exurban Christmas (Day 312)

The aisles are all full 
to bursting, floor to ceiling, 
side to side, the walkways, 
like arteries, narrowed 
by excess, and yet 
just a few bags in hand.
A whole lot of something, or 
a whole lot of nothing—
it barely matters in this 
tumbledown, blue-collar town, 
where the aisles are all full 
to bursting, but there’s little 
worth buying these days.
