"Where's the damn car?"
He asked the short woman with
Fingerprint-smudged eyeglasses
Holding his callous hand
Scanning the ocean of reds
And blues and blacks and cars
And trucks and mini-vans all empty,
On a clear and humid May
Day, outside the air-conditioned mall.

Hub-caps, dents,
Out-of-state
Plates, bumper stickers, and stuff
Strewn across the back seats.

They laughed,
Up and down the rows of cars
Because neither remembered
Nor noticed
When they had parked.
