For Sale

The For Sale board photos
showed glamorous rooms up to the
minute, like the house’s exterior.

The elderly woman turned as
I approached, we often meet
walking to and from the shops,
the supermarket, her council
flat across the road from my flat.

“This is too posh for our street !”
jabbing hr finger at the board.
“This house is a posh house.
Our street is a nice street
but not a posh street !”

That house has been For Sale
for weeks, now with a second
company, in a market with fewer
houses For Sale in our town.

She’s right. Our street is good
to live in, but it is ordinary.

For Sale
