He skitters, ant-like,
Sniffing down the half-price aisles
Needing nothing
Wanting things

Things that taste like auction lists
Or fall off trucks
Things beyond their sell-by date but
Not yet past their use-by

Things inside authentic boxes
Similar by label
Things that come with promises
Instead of guarantees

Things that dampen up his hands
And clench his cheeks
And cause his eyes to
Glitter

Things

Things to fill the world of
Bargain Man

Things to make it matter


------
The eyes rule all.
