Necessities


Isn’t it quaint,
but thank God,
we’ll never need
the cover of these
crumbling Antiques.

Ready to go has been
Left behind. Hanging
On the wall like art.
  
Our world goes with us.
Phones and keys and cards
in cargo pockets.
Our hat, umbrella, phone booth,
Dining car awaits outside.

“Cash Only” handwritten
At the bottom of plank steps.
Oh well, post a picture,
It’s better without that 
dusty smell.
