Some days
are days
of easy bargains
when smiles
go cheap
just because
they are over-supplied

And some days
are days of auction
when
the mundane pains
bring a fortune
just because
people like
a little pickle
with their food.

Wow! what thinking!! I think this one is your best out of all the compositions I have read on your blog. What I like about your creations is their starkness-a kind of furious power that emanates from them. A few words but tark reality!! I hope you continue to write forever and always...

Mampi said...

Yes, so right.
Your compositions always leave me with a big gaping 'wow'

What a fresh perspective on smile, pain and pickles!

The smiles market has hit an all time new low around here. I try to be friendly with everyone, but get a lot of glares from older folks. I told Mrs. Phos if I ever become one of those people that goes around with a permanent frown to smother me with a pillow while I am sleeping.
