Blue Monday: Open by Chance

Sign outside a shop that sells an assortment of old things (often called antiques) in Ajo, Arizona

“Open by chance,” the blue signboard says,
Maybe at seven or nine.
Or maybe not till the sun goes down—
Whenever, that’ll be fine.
You never know what you’ll find at Ray’s—
It might be trash or treasure;
So come to Ray’s as much as you can,
Then some more for good measure.
