Bad Penny

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

Dark Matter

Originally posted 10/28/2005.

you say she keeps turning up in your life 
like a bad penny,
forgetting that

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.

    1. 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.
