Profit by Mark Brawn

I saw a man nailed to the window
of a supermarket
and as the blood rolled slowly down the glass
I thought I heard him say a prayer.
But the trolleys clattered on
and the women chattered on
and the tills played their money melody.
So I rolled up my shopping list scroll
and walked home
