nickels, dimes and pennies

Standard

my floor has an insatiable
                appetite for loose change
these are the souvenirs of
                the places i’ve been
change is only loose when
                presented in cold hard form

the reality of change i’ve made is piling
                up in a bucket over in my bedroom
these are the the pieces that
                i have left
from the times i’ve given over
                something larger

so maybe when the bucket is full i’ll go
                out and slam it
down on a counter and ask
                if it’s enough
