Down in old town
just before the
shipyards and
and near the taverns
is where we’d go
to find
wonderful things
in the rummage shops
for a nickle

I was always able
to find one or two really nice dresses

Once I found a pin
with writing
and colored stones
It was very sparkly
and a bit

I wore it on a
blue jumper

It said “Mambo”
