Orange heads

Large and small

Shelved and perched

In the mall

For each person

To haul

Home a flavor

Of fall.

Stepped Up Conversation

What did she want in that bottle?

What did the store owner allow?

Did her friend understand why it mattered

And how?

Did her own yellow sandals

That fit only sort of

Used to hang in the window

In a bag from above?

What words did they exchange?

Did the girl smile or sigh?

I look at this photo and wonder

What she had asked to buy.
