Flea Market

We don't know how long Samsay has
been selling his carved balsa
paperweights, but we do
notice that no one has the
heart to tell him

His sales are surprisingly brisk.
Perhaps people enjoy the joke,
or the story,
or feel sorry for him

People are drawn to inferior products.
It reassures them that their
lives are not so bad

Jarif sells incense that
smells like skunk.
Perhaps this is to give to
hateful people, in hopes that
they will forget and light one up.
