At A Bag Sale

Red bags, black bags
Big bags, small.
Sequins for dinner
Canvas for the mall.
PC bags, Fanny packs,
Backpacks galore.

Friends buy bags, swap bags, talk bags,
Always want more.

I don’t have a bag.

Once upon a time,
His diaper bag carried all.
Where he goes, I go,
But now he’s grown.
He’s got a knapsack
And I need my own.

Branded bags, executive bags,
Gucci, Chloe, Moschino
The cashiers wonder and whisper
As I wander and snivel,
A lost soul on aisle Coccomato.

The Long Vista

A long vista.
A yellow and white picnic cloth
World under our frilly umbrella
Shoulder to shoulder
Eye to eye, we view
The long vista
