A Poem: Up at the Mall 

The Steel Fisted Robot

Walked on water,

Capturing hearts at The Toy Show

Up at The Mall,

Which is empty now except

For Shows like these.

The Home Show, The Ski Show,

And one for Security Systems.

I was here last year as well

For one called Building Without Wood.

There were Radon Detectors, too

But I didn't commit.

I'm not sure I'm keeping the house.

The kids are out.

The wife's gone

And I'll need to blacktop again.

I don't think I'll

Come here either, anymore.

Something wrong

About a Mall without shops.
