Two Pennies

They threw pennies

At the feet

Of the man

Asleep


When he awoke,

as in a dream

they turned

away


He rose to walk,

leaving them,

in his wake


From a distance

he spoke softly

words carrying

clear

across

silence

“Take up the pennies,

cast down your

Crowns.”


After he spoke,

as in a dream

they turned

away


Fingering tight

draw string pouches

absently counting

gold sovereigns
