The Old Grocery Store

I pulled into the lot
before I realized 
what I was doing.
I had forgotten 
this place closed.
Once a bounty
of fresh fruits and vegetables
greeted all who entered.
Shelves lined with 
breads, cereals, canned goods.
Once a week I'd come
pick through what I'd need.
Now an empty shell
waiting to be transformed.
Luxury condos,
high-end dining experiences,
boutique curiosities. 
Guess it's carryout again.
