dangerous area

in the dairy aisle,
I am dazzled by
the many different flavors
of yogurt on display:
strawberry-banana --
have you had yours today?
as poor old neglected vanilla
sits lonely in a corner,
teeming inside, growing,
looking for hungry bowels,
a new, proud owner --
meanwhile, I hear the
stockboys talking
about arming their girlfriends
with knives
in this part of town:
you never know when trouble
with all this yogurt all around.
