Estate Sale

A lifetime

in stacked dishes,

ceramic statues,

and masking tape price tags.

The crowd scavenges

through the skeleton home

to pull strands of memories

from the bones

of family pictures.

The shoppers pay 

for their ghosts

in fractions of emotions

to supplement

a household’s grief.
