Poetic Therapy | Change

money-924828_960_720

Coin, copper-green and unassuming,
Stuck in the space between foot-worn cobbles,
Lucky for the one who picks you up;
I guess you’ve seen a lot.
Not the first time you’ve been dropped,
Not the first time you’ve been picked up,
Not the first time you’ve been spent,
Not the first time you’ve been lent,
Not the first time you’ve been stored away,
Not the first time you’ve gone on holiday.
Not the first time you’ve been seen
Passed from person to person, to hand, to jeans.

Behind leather seats, stuck in gum,
It won’t be long before another one
Needs some money to spend.

And you’ll be there.


The second Poetic Therapy prompt isย Change.

A nice homonym,ย Change has a lot of meanings for you to take advantage of (or completely ignore), I went for a very physical approach to the prompt.

My response lacks a solid form this week. It came trickling out with a bit of anaphora, a bit of haphazard rhyming, nothing solid, but I like it nonetheless.

What is your interpretation?
