Flea Market of Dreams #2

Sat, 02/25/2017 - 15:15 -- cb1102

A woman with delicate

Crow’s feet framing

Murky blue eyes

Leans heavily against

Her truck.

On her table she has placed

“A Healthy Pregnancy” $19.

A young woman and her partner

Greet the blue-eyed seller

With timid smiles and hopeful


“We’ve been trying,

For so long.”

The older woman nods

And waves her hand.

She sells her broken

Dream for $15

To someone who

Will treasure it

So much more.
