CROHN'S POEMS

THE MEANING OF LIFE

I suppose you think
I'll say
You can't find life's meaning
in a shopping mall
Long rows of shops
up, down
over bright
over crowded
The mega construction
to desire
But what a perfect place
to watch yourself
You may be shopping
in a shoe store
when your Mother comes to say
your daughter has been taken to the hospital
And you know in that moment
your life
will never be the same
You know what is important
what life means
I never did find the shoes for that black dress
