Flea Market

Haibun Poem


A green mountain coffee sign stands in the aisle. Cotton T-shirts and three-quarter shirts with band and sports regalia logos hang on wracks or rest folded on tables inside many booths. Others held piles of DVDs and paperbacks.

Then we find the statues.

Sts. Michael, Gabriel and Uriel. The Buddha. Alongside them: oils and aromas of every kind. Incense. Books on tarot.

We leave after buying only a $6 cell phone case and $4 in lavender oils.

Pouring Rain
Stepping on soaked asphalt
Without a care
