Day I remember, Macy's bag in hand
I went to the mall, present there to buy
Object of my search nonchalantly passed
I didn't recognize a soul around
I had started this in hopes of a later poem. The copied flyer was a part of Victoria Secret's Christmas Special. I did buy Mrs. Jim a pair of pretty red checked PJ's for Christmas, then saved this one. But then I didn't go back to use the free panty offer's coupon.
Mainly I'm not sure of where I'm going with it. Secondly, I ran out of time the day I started. Although it is based on a true experience, there will be additional information that may not necessarily be true.
Perhaps I should return to Victoria's and watch the men who came in, see how they act, what they do, and how they were treated. When I came in I was treated very nicely with the clerk giving me some very useful suggestions. But I did end up with the red PJ's shown in the flyer.

She said this for instructions: "...I am talking about poems that end mid sentence. Perhaps the ones you started with a wowza first stanza, but then it just unraveled and fell flat. The poems you think about once in a while with a twinge of guilt for leaving them unfinished...Those poems, I want them. ..."
"AND NOW FOR YOUR CHALLENGE--When posting your poem in progress, leave very specific instructions about where you are stuck, and let us know what you want feedback on. Maybe even why you stopped writing or what you don’t like about what you have so far.
We toads will respond in kind with our feedback and thoughts to help you finish the poem (huzzah!)."
