a bowl a dart
an old straw hat -
you'll find it

here be my guess at the old thrift shop

piano songs
the old masters fingered -
hidden memories

ah! to reside at the old thrift shop

an amulet -
rare and potent magic
its quotient

its there somewhere in that old thrift shop

wheres and why fors
a bit of this and of that -
embeded bric-a-brac

it all comes eventually to the old thrift shop

What a beautiful piece of writing…
I like flea markets very much (which are quite similar to thrift stores, I think).
I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
