met this group of young entrepreneurs

while walking back

from the downtown art fair

found them

just on the perimeter

in a safe zone

for guerilla marketing

and a cash business

in a bright spot

future lemonade magnates

with

a plan

a happy disposition

and

a wagon-load

full

of quiet enthusiasm

they had made sixty dollars

on the day before

while

rotating jobs

one sign-holder

three salesmen

at street level

offering up cool cups

of

sweet relief

to all who wandered by

with shy smiles

and  a price you couldn’t refuse.
