Funny Shop (written by my daughter)

To the funny shop at the end of the street
lying in shadows yet tidy and neat.

You offer mere hints of former glory
as though only the past may know your story.

Lights in the window are out for the last
dusted in remnants of bustle long past.

I can't stop from wishing you'd open your doors
'though if she'd still be there, she'd still be yours.

I shot this from the window of a bus... with my cell phone. I just loved the shop's quirkiness. And I love my daughter for giving me a poem about a weird photograph. :D

Well, I thought it was darn good. I gave this one an 8. I loved the quirkiness of the photo and the poem is awesome. :)

Leaves made of silver filament
glimmering down from a pewter tree,
John Lennon's eyeglasses,
purchased but never worn,
banana bicycles, painted grapes,
the Rolodex of Zsa Zsa Gabor
with names angrily scratched out,
blades of toy helicopters,
tiny gods with broken legs,
suicide notebooks, gilded ziti,
and one item so precious
you'll never find it
among the dust and noise, even though
you came in with it.
