A Realization of Stock

Fred Meyer spoke to me similarly to the radio station, though it had already misled me.

It spoke to me via soup, much of which is vegetable, but little of which is vegetarian.

It seemed impossible to find a quick meal in a can that involved no death, or at least as little as feasible.

Instead what do I find: an attractive woman, her man nearby and somehow making me feel like I was noticing her, even at the times I wasn’t.

I found other canned goods and retreated to the bulk foods, only to be disappointed again, destined to create my own soup.

A sad try at friendliness produced pointless optimism from the cashier as I left, disappointed.

[see its older brother, too]
