it's sunday nite at the market

there’s a slurpee cup in a mart that don’t quite get filled to the top 
too, a shoppin’ cart that can’t keep up 
i caught you there, lazy sunday’s aside 
i caught you like that, with nothin’ to say 
out lookin’ for a whole lot of nothin’ 
lookin’ for a whole lot of lookin’ 
go ahead, you , there’s a lot to sell on a slow day 
even if you aren’t in the market 
you and me we’re goin’ no where that’s 
no where we ain’t been goin’, fast 
with all we ain’t got, we ain’t got need 
everythin’ we been readin’s been a leadin’ 
to nothin’ left to say and all that’s been a leanin’ 
to all the needin’ we trapped to be young 
you better take everythin’ you ought to 
take your time too 
today ‘what you meant to say’ opened up that mouth you got 
before your words started to talk, and 
before you rebelled to that corner you always seem to narrow 
don’t forget ‘bout that shimmy there at the bottom of your wheel barrel 
it’s a sunday wheel needin’ and lookin’ whole lot 
like a. . . sturdy. . . smart 
shoppin’ cart

    this is an amazing bit of writing. I like the fast pace and the line "before you rebelled to the corner you always seem to narrow" I love it! Love christie
