the corporate colt-45 chants triple 6:

the mark of the much-maligned beast.

the spectre of ‘progress’; consistent and callous:

bulldozing the dreams of small business owners,

scorching the earth and upending the locals.

an aging man pivots a sign on the door

of his family store for the very last time,

from ‘open’ to ‘closed’: the final rotation

repeats in his dreams when he drifts off each night.
