Marketing 101

When a child gets to that age
you know when she or he wants to control
the food she or he eats
what the folks do
how they look at modern culture

you’ll find you have
to take that child to the farmer’s market.

Provide money.

Let she or he make the choices
though you might script some of those
as you can only carry home so many watermelons.

You guide to the homey
and good value stalls
and away from the posers
and miracle food pushers

that is to say
the real alternatives
to the grocery store
as opposed to the countrified
snake oil salespeople.

You hope the difference is seen
and appreciated

the whole
not the

that connection
is made
with the source
and not the reverse.
