Once again, Tony speaks to me on more than one level.

you say she keeps turning up in your life
like a bad penny,
if a bad penny
has been beaten
by time and trauma,
it will pull your fingers
to your pocket
far faster than a good one will and
if your bad penny
is made of something other than copper
it will be warmer to the touch so
you will guard it
far longer than you would
any good penny;
you’ll keep it, show it off,
dream of it, cry if you lose it,
die with it on your mind.

He is an wonderful poet. I’m glad you enjoyed some of his work.
that is very interesting… food for thought in this one… and it’s so true…
Yes. Tony is often telling it like it is and continues to be one I watch for in my inbox. Regardless of agreement, he has a lot to say.
Tony is wonderful. Fortunately he posts often. He is also a musician.
Yes, I noticed—cool 🙂
