buy the buy

Storekeepers who
Cover their walls with
Merchandise, cramming as much
As they can possibly sell
Into as neat a space as possible —

Buyers, looking for bargains,
Living somewhere between
Hope for a miracle and
Grim acceptance of reality —

And one watching,
Understanding nothing
Of the language being spoken,
But seeming to understand perfectly

Owen "Beleaguered" Servant (a/k/a Sibelius Russell) writes poetry mostly, with an occasional pause to have a seizure.
