Kittens Used Cars

On the road to the doctor,
radio silence for your nerves,
The Cranberries blasting in my head,
singing about life’s habit of changing every day,
we passed a battered junkyard
with a sandwich board out front.

                   Used Cars
                For Sale Here

is what the sign said.
I considered the possibilities
in waiting rooms for the rest
of the day. Thank you,
thoughtful proprietor
for your kind restraint
in the use of punctuation,
for letting me wonder
what it all means.
