For Quickly #9

day-9
Quickly Day #9–Hopper/Waits

 
 

Incandescence

A man came to the store.
What can I do you for? I said.

He asked for rain.

You stand watching time like a river.
There are worse places to live.

Rooms seen through open windows.

Old man cries because the trees are bare.
Kid with candy in her blond hair.

Yellow light like a candle.

A man’s castle is his grocery cart.
Talks about a son and two daughters.

When will I see you again?
