Jack Shaw

walking yard sale

i sell books
&
rocks
&
vases
&
wine bottles
&
rare coins
&
post cards
&
doll houses
&
all the furnishings of a swell pad
&
backpacks of stories
&
cassette tapes
&
shitty old paintings
&
no photo available

you can catch me minding
my own goddamn business
just a little further than yourself
&
i sell clerical collars
&
all the no where near virgin mary kind
&
pillboxes 
&
i sold a few safes
(which is just as difficult
to say as it it to move)
&
you may ask yourself
how do i flip this
&
you may sell yourself
i can’t flip this
&
you make sell yourself
is this my wagon
collecting the time again
it’s all in our own little ways 
just the way we move
