07 flea market saturday - vampire deer

September 15, 2013 1:45 PM

drive out of town and you'll find this place

flea market saturday, sun so hard it's fading all the paisley dresses
piles of tires, howling wolves and dogs playing poker kind of paintings
battery powered flowers for the dashboard of your car and beanie babies
books and dvds, cds and old records and one dollar medicine bags
yesterday is still for sale

woman says she's a carnivore, feed me something real, goddamn it
migrants in black cowboy hats, looking at some fake depression glass
it's a low rent shipshewana, set your rv up and try to sell
no jobs left to find, but all that's left behind is on the tables to buy
yesterday is still for sale

Well that certainly evokes a mood I get at flea markets. Good wall of sound orchestration.
