Marché aux Puces (Flea Market), by Joseph Dorazio

Marché aux Puces (Flea Market), by Joseph Dorazio

Marché aux Puces

 

(Flea Market)

 

 

You don’t bargain

 

for the itch to scratch

 

— it comes attached,

 

the way the past

 

comes hitched

 

to the present.

 

Don’t resent it.

 

The oldfangled

 

is still of use: reach

 

inside your purse,

 

buy it with change

 

that’s loose.

 

 

— Joseph Dorazio

 

 

Joseph Dorazio’s poems have appeared widely in print and online. He lives and writes in Wayne.
