OK Market

The OK Market waits for customers.

Once upon a time the market was a neighborhood center.

A place where one could be replenished, nourished.

Now, a garland of sad pennants festoons its signboard.

In front, colorful tables and chairs invite loiterers.

The posters over the door and the boarded-up windows depict happier times.

A Ghost Market, giving succor to only to its ghosts.

Tucson, 2019
