They just closed an Olive Garden and replaced it with a Chili's.
The CVS is out. The Rite Aid is in.
Home Depot gone. Staples opens.
A Blockbuster is shuttered. An AT&T wireless store appears.
Sizzler was. Taco Bell is.

shoddy, and cheap.
We have been laid low by linoleum,pricked by plate-glass and fucked by fluorescence.
Our artificially-flavored, genetically-modified souls weep synthetic tears.
