I bought this dresser at an antique sale today
on my way home from the market.
The drawers are lined in
pea green velvet.
There is an oval
engraved on the headboard
which I fastened with screws.
I have no idea how I will get this
back to my apartment in New York.
This fact was of little concern to me
when I saw it standing there
in the grass
on someone’s lawn.
I’ve also adopted these vintage purses from my grandmothers.
They were hidden in my mother’s closet.
Way in the back.
