change…

change

these coins
have their values
imprinted
upon metal
and
in minds
like
so much
in the world
others have
set the values
for what
should
and
should not
be pursued
but
some
don’t share
that same scale
of worth
they
grew into
a place
outside the confines
of mental
territorial borders
of
socially
acceptable
behavior
and
though they see
some beauty
in coins
it is not
imposed
but
determined
by
them

  1. Ha! I was studying the photo before reading your poem. Actually I was in a manner of speaking assigning value to different aspects of the photo including the coins. Needless to say you poem was very interesting following my experience!
