More Than One Part

This is the part I don’t get:
  • Getting a return on execution
  • How to be search disabled
  • A greeter at WalMart with eyes as black as tadpoles
I don't get how a greeter at WalMart can upset my apple cart for not spending a dime. Accounting in the aisles is so lip gloss. I go back home empty-handed, my hands filled with touching. All is not lost, but why do I use my car remote to get in the front door? I don't know what door I'm going in anymore. I can only think, "If I want to know where I'm going, I need to get there."

Something like:
  • Not getting rick-racked on execution
  • How to be search enabled
  • A greeter at WalMart with eyes as black as tadpoles 
Here’s another part I don’t get:

A Statue of Liberty drumming up business, stopping traffic at every street corner. Dressed in Styrofoam with a green crown strapped to her head. Matching flip-flops. She's waving an ice-cream torch. I lick it and ask, “What social studies book did you come from?” Some answers may be:
  • Her ding-dong's in hiding
  • She's a woman pressed into perpetuity
  • She's the son of a CPA
The real Lady Liberty with her skirts of copper and hands of shelter would strike this impostor with an arch of her eyebrow. But here's the part I really don't get. How can a person lose love and not do a thing to get it back:
  • Something about the Law of Inversion?
  • Something about the Law of Reversion?
  • Something about a greeter at WalMart with eyes as black as tadpoles?
