Love this ….laughed out loud
Touching all my emotions, you’ve done it again ! Brilliant.
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…….

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

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!” 🙂
Don’t we all!
Your poetry is something special.
What a journey!
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!

So many critters captured and pacified in this little cage of a poem. Thanks.
Pingback: Gum –
Brought the reader on a journey, traipsing past all these stores, individuals, and the character’s actions as well as thoughts. Well-done.
“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. 🙂
