"At the All Mall"

"At the All Mall," by Christopher Walsh, 6/24/2016-6/25/2016





The All Mall.
Something (at least one thing) for everyone.
(OK, there's air, so: at least two things.)
Each of you is welcome. Each feels...
(A welcoming feeling? There, at least three things.)
You can linger; you can be quick.
Get whatever wanted thing now, or, you know, eventually.
You can be as social or solitary as desired.
The music you hear will be whatever you wish to hear.
(Directed sound waves: reaching selected people.)
(You can choose silence, if you want.)
The All Mall is comfortable. Inviting.
You naturally feel good. You naturally feel better. You, in fact, naturally feel well.
The All Mall is as natural as a mall can be — though malls
Do not
Exist in nature.
(But if it could have, Nature would've invented it.)
(Naturally.)
You can be born in the All Mall. Maybe you were. It accommodates that, as well, if your parents pay the right price.
The All Mall wants you to be used to the All Mall.
It wants you to feel, as long as you wish, briefly or for a while,
At home. (FOUR. Four things, perhaps more.)
Each store at the All Mall is a proven success. A place
Enough people (often plenty of people)
Would want to go.
Some stores weren't mall-friendly —
But now, after enough time, the successes are known, and shepherded, and kept.
The All Mall is the perfected mall.
It's a perfected experience.
Every corner, every tile, every transparent/translucent/frosted glass pane,
Adds to that.
Supports that.
Is planned.
There's no discomfort. No outside dissonance. Nothing awkward.
You want to be there.
If you want to be, you want to be there.
At the All Mall.
