Times have really changed.Life in this new millenium marches on. This is a reflection of a Saturday about ten years ago.


In the Twentieth Century
Two women sell lemon squares,
Blondies, buckeyes, fried pies.
Saturday means fund-raising.
They bend to make change,
Take turns at rearranging fudge.
Antique car show gearing up
Outside the K-Mart window.
By noon, all the empty places
In the lobby will fill up with smokers
Indifferent to sweets. A last
Mini-cheesecake is sold. Cheerleaders
And their mothers reach for quarters.
The high school drama team makes
Quota and a man has
Lost his wife in lawn and garden.

So it was in those Saturdays, I remember the Girl Scouts selling cookies outside K-mart and all. Now we have the yard sales to go to each Saturday. Lots of them today I passed by while driving. Don't need no more things to collect dust.
