K-mart: Saturday

These women always smell like 1974 and cigarette in an alley with a kid named Louie
They have a submissive accent as they push their cart full of cookies and cokes past you
The accent disappears when the phone rings or when the kid helps them find pop-tarts

The arrogant little Mexican kids with their adult hair cuts and fashion statements
Who zoom in and out of aisles touching everything and feeling nothing
They always hit just about below the belt and are dangerous at high speeds

I just came for a few things but am hypnotized by the bright lights and the banal music
I was looking in the home improvement department for something to patch my heart up
All I found was a diploma sized frame and an outdated action figure
