Black Friday Angel

Into the night
you'll go running
Black Friday night and
morning's sleepless shoppers
ignore abandoned streets
unlike lighted god malls
and the idols
somewhere therein
always beaming--

There's no bikes
keeping you safe on
creeping doom wheels
and the taxis only take
cash, specifically
green paper credits for the

(I imagine several darkened
blocks away) the Marriott
with its dim lights,
locked doors, and
sleeping agents guarding
beautiful empty couches &
unstained tables
from my breathless angel
hurrying home
