sometimes a cigar is just a cigar

I found this for you

as she handed over a tissue wrapped gift

inside was a brass & bright glass hour glass

of course I said thank you

put it on the side to gleam

so’s I could watch the sand slip time

she dealt in antiques curious

the found in thrift charity stores

church rummage jumble sales

making a living from a bit made here & there

sitting behind tables at antique fairs

& now

leaving me with the puzzle

as to why such a gift

had I made her wait

or was it her

making me the same?
