Used Goods

A Poem by Kersten Christianson

Welcome to the online garage sale,

the second hand shop of your mind

where the fertile eggs of white elephant



gifts abound.   Welcome to the place

you can find the treasures you never

knew you needed: the 1970’s bathtub


Jesus for the yard, the friend of Barbie

to cure her loneliness on the shelf,

the flaming tiki goods for patio


parties. You, too, can live the reclaimed

life of a retired queen, a repurposed

existence adorned with rhinestone bling,


the shuffle hush of non-recyclable grocery

store bags filled with the turquoise sky

of potential, filled with your salvation.
