Vine Street Vineland Avenue

A Poet at the Flea Market

David Sequin

I had a long trip today, to a flea market in the City of Industry on Vineland. I buy clothes there and sell them on Etsy and eBay.

I used to drive there, but I find it’s more relaxing to take the train. I bring my composition book, and I write whatever is on my mind: poetry, music. I think about a lot of stuff. I came to L.A. for film school, which is what I’m pursuing right now. Today, I was thinking about a new business venture. I’d like to put an ad up on Craigslist and find some writers to collaborate with on a video.
