the auction house

Lot 451

dream
of a summer’s day

with picnic
beside creek

two parties
involved

and a dog

who will start now
who will open the bidding
for this marvelous dream

there
in front

with you now
thank you sir

lady on the left now

a-a-n-d
with you sir
at the back

thank you madam
with you
again
on the left

go-
ing

third and final
tome now

are we all done

SOLD
to you madam on the left

that’s well bought madam

LOT 452

vision
of a pretty little house

picket fence

rooms
exactly as required
including nursery

all right then

who
will start me off
