  7. 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!” πŸ™‚

    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!

    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.
