in-place-show wagering…

win-place-show wagering

with death
eyes
have no purpose
but
to hold
two coins
coins
of the realm
perhaps
a final gesture
of human greed
so as to taunt
the saying
you can’t take it with you
but
it is
but
two coins

  1. the coins were to pay the tiller man for your ride over the river into the underworld, wonder why they need money there? maybe for a quick beer after a long day of ferrying dead people across the river? who know, an odd custom …

  2. Every morning, before I visit your blog, I make myself a coffee and listen to your voice at least 2 to 3 times as I ponder your words. Sad but true Charlie. (If only the river Styx could talk) 🙂
