I love to sit here,
hearing the cash registers
grind and clang.
You’d think it was
my money.
Customers move about,
some purposefully,
others ambling
around with their hands
pushed in their pockets,
waiting to see
what grabs them.
The way you are
in hardware stores,
perusing aisles to see
what you discover,
that can solve problems
you didn’t know
you had.
