aisle 12 : Response to Jason F. Williams’ “by the eggs, aisle 12”

by the eggs,aisle 12

I tried not to
run her over,  and
succeeded.

When inside
the grocery store,
she saw me
carrying a bottle
of whiskey,  and
I saw her
carrying a container
of milk,  and
we knew it
would fail.

aisle 12 

He nearly ran me over,
foot lead on the pedal, pure
sex.

Later in the grocery store,

next to the eggs, I reached for my 2%
And sealed my
die-alone-cat-lady fate
As he walked out with his bottle of
die-young whiskey.
