Bookstore Owner

She lost her bookstore and then her mind.
Her friends took her in.
But she longed for the corner on the street
where the bookstore used to stand,

Now she camps in the entryway of a building
on the corner of the street where the bookstore once stood.
She stares silently at the passersby.

The bookstore disappeared twenty years ago
But her mind never returned.
