aisles and aisles of absolventina,
theopathine, genuflix, orisol.
an enormous place;
organ music in the background while you shop.
all the faiths are represented too —
there’s christendine and antichristendine,
ormuzal, arymanol, anabaptiban,
methadone, brahmax, supralapsarian
and zoroaspics, quaker oats, yogart,
mishnameal and apocryphal dip.
pills, tablets, syrups, elixirs, powders, gums —

they even have lollipops for the children.
