Big Box Stores

The inspiration for poems of mine can come from many different sources, such as something someone said or an interesting object or photo. Big Box Stores was a poem I had written in Fall of 2017, based on a photo I had snapped at the Screening Room, our local movie theatre. Instead of giving you the poem’s meaning and explaining what it is trying to get at, I will let you try to figure that out yourselves.

Big Box Stores

“The only game in town”

their neon sign reads,

overshadowed by corporations,

taking over with speed.

 

The bookstores and coffee shops

close in favour of big box stores.

 

Where people do not think

beyond the deal-plastered doors.

– Sarah Hesp
