“Arrow Lakes Hospitals Auxiliary Thrift Shop” by Sasha at her desk

From a sign in Nakusp, BC

You are the new barometer of vibrations
whether I will or will not go
into a certain thrift shop
have a certain person over
eat a certain cured meat

You are the new teller of fortunes
staring into the magic crystal
your eyes changing colour
with the intentions of the hearts
in the room

You are the new best thing
in the city the place I always
want to be even when I don’t
