Intergalactic Market

A market, one you’ve never seen,
Floats nebulous in space,
Like a food truck, ever changing
Schedules, time and place.

It stocks the common market fare
But on a stellar scale,
And stars come out to hawk their goods
And shine, For sale! For sale!

There’s fresh-churned cream and milky treats
And stands of boxed cigars,
Assorted hats, sombreros too,
Sunflower ion bars.

Even tadpoles can be found
If one knows where to look,
And pretty pinwheels on display
With comet tails and hook.

The giant rings are quite a sight
And always draw a crowd,
While earrings made of silver pearls
Will make an owner proud.

Come buy! Come look!
Just take a peek,
Admission’s usually free,
So much to see, a feast for eyes,
A cosmic gallery.

  1. So wonderfull and enchanting, draws you right in and asks you to imagine. I’d love to visit a marketplace like this 😀

    1. So happy you enjoyed it! 😀

  2. I love to visit that market, is there any spacesuit required?

    1. That depends on where you keep your telescope. 😉

  3. Really love this 🙂

  4. My kind of market 🙂

    1. Glad you’re not afraid of possible wandering Daleks like Brian is. 😉

      1. Hmmmm no I am scared of those lol

  5. A market of haggling future!

  6. Milky teats and giant rings? Sounds like Fleetwood Market to me. The trouble with holding a market in space is that there are probably Daleks wandering about in it somewhere and that wouldn’t do me at all.

    1. Ah, sorry you didn’t like it. Next time I will try to incorporate guards to ward off wandering Daleks.

      1. And a good cheese stall with some Garstang Blue and Stinking Bishop. None of that Moon Cheese though. It tastes as though astronauts have been trampling all over it.

        1. That’s why you skim the top layer off. Common moon cheese protocol.

          1. That’s why I don’t trust Daleks. It was a Dalek what sold it to me under the pretence that it was the finest Camembert.

            1. The print left by the space boot should have clued you in. You know what they say, buyer beware.

  7. Me thinks this might be to deep for me at this moment in time!

  8. A couple of years ago while travelling Australia I frequented quite a few markets..Next time have to try outer space. Love it.

    1. I would love to see some Australian markets. 🙂
