For $3.25 Each, We Stand

Image by Yi-Ching Lin

for $3.25 each, we stand

for $3.25 each, we stand
deep in winter, slowly
chilling, a plastic spoon
between our lips, re-capturing
our fondest childhood
memories, tongues
the flavor of tiptoeing
to take in the uniform
buckets behind glass
and having to choose
between so many
swirling destinies
