I remember smoking up
behind the mall and
walking with back-
wards hat friends
with my pants hang-
ing down my white
bony ass. Red eyed
we would walk into
the toy store and
make mechanical toys
look like nature shows
until they kicked us out.

We’d go to the food
court to eat Chinese
Chicken & we asked
the old lady giving
free samples and if
she knew Bruce Lee.

You never say any-
thing clever or cool
to the girls in the
mall but we’d ask if
they want to go to
Victoria Secret and
start to laugh when
they rolled their eyes.

We’d always end up
at The White Store
looking around like
it was heaven and
say with a stoned
smile ‘do you have
anything in black?’
