When It’s Over

If you find
that your stock has grown low
and you no longer have enough
to provide to your customers
there is no shame
in admitting this.

If you don’t have anything
that will satisfy
the line around the block
then there is an awkward conversation to come
but once you tell them
there’s nothing to see here
they will just go home
and it will be all over.

There is no reason to keep them
in suspense.
There is no reason
to belabor the obvious.
There is no reason
not to close your doors
when you have nothing left.

They will appreciate it probably
after they’re done cursing you out
for wasting their precious time.
