How to Know That You’re Done With Garage Sales for the Day

Standard

Overcast blue skies,
sun peeks out at intervals –
just my kind of day.

Bagel sandwiches
and coffee start the morning –
things are looking good.


More garage saling,
en route to a prime listing.
Turn the corner and –

two cop cars! Police!
Lights flash, driveway is taped off,
blood splatters the ground.

Sale items still out –
a strange juxtaposition.
“You will pay in blood.”

A hasty driver?
A fight over kitchenware
that turned violent?

One more example
of “keeping it real” in the
City of Angels?

When garage sales need
police intervention then
we have a problem.


Note: I have no idea what happened – it had already occurred. I hope no one was to badly injured. Also, I know that “saling” isn’t technically a word but it’s my haiku.
