Why is there a haunted floating jaw?
There is a jaw floating in the stationary aisle of Target. Why is it there? And why won’t anyone talk to me about it?
At first I thought they can’t see the jaw, because no words come from it; it only makes a
quiet wet sound as it moves back and forth, up and down. It can’t make words by itself.
Then I thought, “Maybe they are all ignoring me and the disembodied jaw. They don’t even know us.” But they can’t see the jaw. They must not be able to, because it’s hovering right near my face as I plead with them to talk to me about it.
Only I can see the jaw, and only I can figure out what it’s trying to say to me.
I’m going to buy some popcorn from the cafe. Just for myself. I won’t give any to the jaw.
