At the pawnshop

I admit it I'm addicted
visiting pawnshops
I love the bustle
without any kind of hustle

just in front of me I can see
what I'm searching for
genuine marble
real Art Deco without garble

my dreamed deskset a statuette
of decades ago
after the bidding
belongs to me I'm not kidding

beauty in black and grey marble
happiness is affordable
