Takes a Cool Head

In the middle of the mall
a shopper fell to the floor,
writhing and jerking back-snappingly
gargling incoherent pleas
then coming apart in smaller and smaller chunks
swiftly disintegrating
into a dispersing crowd
of juvenile advertimorphs

onlookers stampeded

they always forget, the Inspector said
the ads are annoying
but it's the mod-wasps to look out for
why I always wear Cutters 3000
and earplugs
added benefit: I talk first and listen last
if at all
