grocery shopping

stopping well and starting again
chamomile tea is a good substitute
for love, sanity, and all things vague
stopping over and starting begins
in fields of signs on grocery store walls
to find meaning, to find a song
and phone calls unreceived from the other side of time
the speaker's broken, caller's asleep
static rules with a plastic fist
stopping blanks and starting wins
flashes out with certain uncertainty
pauses down the isle and
the cart is empty
