The Kitsch Factor

Forty-five dollars
is a somewhat outrageous price
for this vintage cigarette case.
It doesn’t even have
any bells or whistles
to sweeten the deal,
just a spring hinge
and a picture of a schooner.
I’m not what you would call
a boating enthusiast,
I’d just be getting it
for the kitsch factor.
Hell, I don’t even smoke.


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.
