I tossed a coin in a fountain one time
and watched it’s quick decent to the bottom
where it settled on a stack of other people’s wishes
and it was a metaphor for the work I do
I considered that
So, I found another body of water –
an aquarium this time around –
where I can swim with the fishes rather
than lounge on cast-off change
I hope to dig myself a pool

Here – borrow my spade.
I’m not entirely sure why, but man I love this.
Thanks the both of you.
