free samples

the stall is open.
reaching for a sample,
tasting of what is good –
advertised to be.
a trial period; sign up
to dig deep,
and see if what you find,
the crowd will come
if you make yourself free.
so let them try
the bits you cut out from yourself;
each more lost than the last.
they will say the texture, inconsistent;
layers, incoherent;
“there is something missing;
what’s behind the counter?”

| the stall is closed.
opening hours are? |
