The Donut Shop Parking Lot Necropolis

A necropolis is a large cemetery or burial ground, usually including structural tombs. The word comes from the Greek νεκρόπολις - nekropolis, literally meaning "city of the dead". Apart from the occasional application of the word to modern cemeteries outside large towns, the term is chiefly used of burial grounds, near the centers of ancient civilizations, such as an abandoned city or town.

There are a couple of stores around here
that sell DVD’s for about five bucks.
They’re general merchandise stores not stores
devoted to entertainment business.

Five bucks for a movie means that movies
are a disposable commodity
to the business world decision makers.

The magazines nobody buys cost more.

I guess soon enough nobody will buy
movies. They’ll die like magazines and books.

Since movies only cost five bucks I bought
an old zombie movie because it starred
a cool actress named Aimee Lynn Chadwick.
I’d seen it before—of course—but five bucks
is cheap enough for me to pick it up
to enjoy Aimee Lynn Chadwick’s acting
and to see if the movie was as bad
as I remembered. After watching it
and enjoying Aimee Lynn Chadwick’s parts,
I figured, Yeah, it’s as bad as I thought.

So I just threw it out, wrote off five bucks.

When I tossed it, I left the DVD
on top of the trash container out back.
For two or three days nobody walking
through the alley took the DVD home.
When the garbage truck lifted the trash bin
the DVD got dumped into the back
of the truck with the rest of the garbage.

Not only are movies disposable,
but nobody wants them even for free.

“Necropolis” means “city of the dead.”
