Clearance Sale

       Clearance Sale   

Thousands upon thousands  

of used and discarded thoughts 

for sale, a few in mint condition, 

others not worth the time and trouble. 

For whether a hermit or hoarder,

each one still gathers piles 

of misspent thoughts never 

meant for even a misfiring 

or two. 

Who knows though? One might 

just be the missing puzzle piece 

you have been looking for 

all of your life. 

No need for delay, 

come early, stay awhile,

let your own mind wander 

among these stacks of thoughts, 

each one no longer thinking 

about how or when, 

only hoping for one more chance, t

o find a loving home, for a while.
