Swap Meet

Collecting experiences to trade with my Regular.
She marvels at the junken treasures
eyeballing the secondhand goods to bargain the price.

"But the offers include special histories!" I cry.
She understands and pays plenty with smiles.

When she is gone, my business is gone.
So I rush to Her booth
to return cherished patronage with smiles of my own.
