#2: unadvertised soul/food because it’s regular/never “organic”
#3: wonder bread thrift store/cheap as fuck snack cakes for kids/never no pastries
#4: weekend flea market/bootleg ev’rything never/no credit all cash
#5: earth-toned clothes from earth/dirt dust grime of getting by/never “earth-tone” clothes
#6: three rims one donut/potholes patched for years never/no new black asphalt
#7: windowless corner/store blunts quarts & utz singles/never microbrew
#8: dandelion sprouts/thru cracked neglected sidewalk/not yet rounded up
