Poem: Words Overheard at the Market

Words Overheard at the Market

Yes, she said,
everything here
was thrown away.
I just believed
in their beauty.

About this poem

Hard to call it a poem really, since I stole all but two words from a young woman in the Roanoke City Market. But it’s worth setting down anyway.
