My Thrift Store Days, Part III

My Thrift Store Days, Part III


Book Department
I throw out bibles
that other people donate
I don’t bat an eye

Vintage tees are high
holy relics I collect.
Thrift store is my church

Take A Shower, Please
This one lady makes
the store reek horribly of
sweaty, rancid crotch

On the shelf I spy
hobnail milk glass collection
Out of the way, bitch

The Unsold
Logo denim shirt
Freebie from your company
No one wants it, man

Granny’s Gotta Have It
Nice old lady shops
every Friday evening
Flirts with boy cashiers

    Can you produce a slim volume of these, please? I am so in love.

    Most of them are my sister’s. And she hates writing. What the hell do you do with haikus? Who buys a damn haiku?

    Yes! All evocative and fun.

    These are gold. You must do something with them. Love em.
