Grocery

The grocery store smelled of fish-decay arrested by hot water and bleach. The shoppers stumbled around without looking at anything except for the products on the shelves, or they stared, unfocused, and talked on the phone. The phone talkers looked like people do when they talk on the telephone at home: slightly slouched, fidgeting or toying aimlessly with their hair. Unguarded as if alone in a bedroom or living room. One woman said "Oh yeah, uh huh, he did? That's good." She picked up cans of vegetables and vaguely read the nutritional information.
