Joyce Williams (Wichita, KS, USA)
Shopping at the Mall
People! Me, looking at People.
People, looking at me.
Old people, trying to look young.
Young people, trying to look old.
Walking, talking, laughing people.
fuzzy, frowsy, sober people.
tipsy, tip-toesy, striding people.
Walking in protective units
of sobriety and gaiety,
merriment, wonder, and awe.
All kinds of people.
