DEATH OF A SHOP

Going...going...







Made even more poignant/funny by the fact that it was called 'Life Support' - geddit! - I skulked around and camped-out outside for a few days ('til the security-guards frogmarched me away in me quilt!) hoping they'd smear the frontage w/ windolene, but no dice: in this super-fast post-millennial consumerscape of ours its a non-stop race to get the next retailers in and keep the business rates a-flowin'. (weird how the sign seems to get progressively brighter as the shop dies - like a nimbus or a halo of light - as if the shop's soul was leaving its body. (Do shops have near-death out-of-body experiences, I wonder?))

Still, some windolene woulda been nice tho; like a corpse seen thru a smeary veil of tears...

Dunno.

Never went in. Never even noticed it, to be honest, until it started dying...

Now there's a thought: shops that we don't notice...I mean, they're not exactly small things, are they?...but there's loads that we all just pass by, that are barely there at all in our consciousness...just seen out the corner of our eye...
