Good Morning America

Here’s a lifestyle report
about grocery stores
that serve liquor to shoppers.

It’s so civilized, smiles the reporter.

Here’s a spokesperson 
for one of the stores in question
who recounts the story of a customer
who bought a crown roast of lamb
and then had to find room in her freezer
because she bought it
with no idea of what to do with it
and didn’t want to throw it out.

Here is everyone
smiling and nodding.

Somewhere
in a very stuffed freezer
sits everything
you need to understand
where we are now.
