flea market sunburn


went poking around for junk today
mostly looking
enjoying the crowd
lots of us old people

but i noted a healthy dose of the very young
well, twenty somethings kinda young
eagerly eyeballing the goods
nice crowd

bought a couple old platters
they'll go well
with the rest
of my mumble jumble dish menagerie

and two creamy yellow birds
now hang out with the rest of my flock
i'm a bird collector
by default
they just seem to find me

and so the sun beat down
while my sister and i tirelessly
went through someone else's
forgotten treasures
picking up roasted flesh
in the process

ahh well, tomorrow the burn
will be a warm reminder
of today's lolly gagging jaunt

i need more stuff like.......
