Watchers (Mall Stalkers)

No, not autobiographical… which is probably what someone would say who does these kinds of things, i guess?

when watching people, i pretend
people don’t know how close
they’re being watched
then i tell em

watching stars fall, commend each one
for hanging on so long and bright
only to end,

just like that, yeah, dulled
their points all dark
and flat
, i’m that

when stalking people
i pretend people don’t know
how close they are to my
shoulder tap and
ankle trap-

in their shopping tracks, tongues
rolling back, the prices too,
now price gun’s aimed
it’s eye at you.
