She rummages through dumpsters,
procuring old picture frames,
earthenware, and nearly new clothes.
Scavaging back alleyways,
scouring through life’s thrown away.
coffee tables, and golden cows.
She knows exactly where to look.
By day’s end she fills the truck.
Stacked dresser drawers full,
of books, pearls, and girly gifts,
things he will never understand.
Yet, he receives each found treasure,
with the openness of being in love.
