Poet’s Corner

“the $7 couch”

By: Nina Miglio

at the thrift shop

where hand-me-downs have a back story

you wear someones past

and you must give it a future

worn out

the scent of an old closet

the couch was one

worn out like lipstick after a long day

like a good pair of classic sneakers that are beautifully ragged

the olive tone of the fabric was chilling

the past two houses I’ve lived in were that color

maybe it was my turn to give it a future

only seven dollars?

there was no way to deny it

not too shabby I thought

it was destiny in a way

a sign
