When I was empty and half-full
grown and couldn't stand myself
another minute, I used to walk
to this tacky little shop at the corner
of Broadway and Main Street.
Hanging in the window, just to the left
of the dusty, silver-belled door, was a sign
that still comes frequently to my mind
even after thirty long years:
WE BUY JUNK
AND SELL ANTIQUES!
Words to live by, don't you think?
