No More Bloomingdale’s Minnesota

In closing, some stand back
in their standard poses,
others have taken
the fall into a pile

of limbs and tiny torsos. All
white-washed and naked
and smoothed over and buckled
under the expanse

of gray carpet
in an empty showroom
where the sales fell

short. Where they go
next is a recycler’s dream
I hope to have tonight.
