Mom and Pop Places

Marty has a look on his face
that indicates
his intimate knowledge
of the price of limes
at his corner bodega,
but he won’t tell anyone.

He wants people to see
for themselves
while visiting the store
and perusing the produce.

Marty has always
been a proponent
of mom and pop places,
and his face
gives away that sentiment.


Author: Aidan Badinger I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.
