Haha.It just made my day.I am so enthralled.I read it twice and I read all the comments to know everyone’s opinion! You are a beautiful writer! Beautiful indeed! 🙂
Love it. Full of astute observations!! I started to wonder why it was called “Gum” and before I could even formulate the question, you answered it.
Thanks I liked that very much.

This is so great. I can relate!!!!!!!! lol
“Everyone trying hard to look
Like they are not looking at themselves
While they look at themselves.” wonderful! I like how you have penned down your observation articulately. 🙂
Brought the reader on a journey, traipsing past all these stores, individuals, and the character’s actions as well as thoughts. Well-done.

So many critters captured and pacified in this little cage of a poem. Thanks.
Reblogged this on dupewrites.
The picture caught my eye as soon as I scrolled down to your poem. I wondered if the pack of gum was original to the picture. I love your take on the shops. Your ending somehow manages to be a paradox with the picture. I love it!
What a journey!
Your poetry is something special.
Don’t we all!
Simple, familiar, yet so unique. I love these lines. “Everyone trying hard to look Like they are not looking at themselves While they look at themselves. I hate to admit doing that, but I do!” 🙂
Loved this, loved being in that convenience store with you, and then with you and your thoughts and the chocolate bar as you wander back. O.Henry could not have stuck that ending better. Superb! ~ Peri

As long as you are going to share the chocolate. 🙂
Oh my word. This was absolutely wonderful. Such a great tale. Really well written! I LOVE IT!!!!!!
Oh my goodness haha this is great! Very, very clever and well done!
I really love this!
The dueling decades. I wish those dratted 50s would give us 60s a little peace and then the chocolate bar in hand would justify the forgotten gum…….
Touching all my emotions, you’ve done it again ! Brilliant.
Love this ….laughed out loud
I really enjoyed this – great writing!
Idaho Italy, right?
