alone, after dark, parking lot, last minute shopping, strangers

After dark

After dark

they come

out of the

woodwork

lining up

at the 15

item

checkout

with their carts

full of booze.

the store closes.

the only lamp post

light

shining in the

empty parking lot is

on your

car.

the

panhandler

emerges from

the deep shadows

reaching

out

for

your

wallet.
