Pocket Change


I emptied it on the table
Pocket Change.
It clinked as it fell
And then settled
Into a silence.
An assortment of coins
That adds up to a lot
But looks worthless
One piece at a time.
In the age of plastic money
It is unnecessary
Weight in your wallet.
Bulky
Awkward
Belonging best in beggar’s hands.

Feelings
Are like that too.
