After Sierra DeMulder’s ‘O Economy Pt.2 .

 

 

Damaged Goods

Yard Sale.
All items used, abused, likely damage.

Mirror.
Cracked, chips in places. Honest
even when you wish it wouldn’t be.

Books, pt1.
Notebooks. Most used,
qualification in decoding and data analysis helpful,
but not required.

Ideas.
Free to a good home.

Books, pt2.
Much thumbed, smudges in places.
May include traces of tea, nuts, biscuit, tea, tears, drool, coffee, tea,
youthful ambitions of being a writer.
Non-refundable.

Heart.
Some obedience issues,
manual not included.

Hiking boots.
Effective over seven leagues.
May cause wanderlust.
Please see travel agent if symptoms persist.

Hands.
Ink-stained,
pen-calloused
white-knuckle fist-pump brick-wall-grind
rope-burned
yours if you can take them.

Heart.
Spare pieces,
previous caretaker returned.

This poem.
Take as you will.
