The Gunmetal Pound in Your Pocket

by Suzanne Conboy-Hill

Grubby filigree dropping through time like a brass badge,

We catch

Momentarily, hold, pass on, exchange

For time punctuated

Ephemera.

*

History’s tale, brass braille

In a rounded token.

Currency to be stolen, traded, bitten in a

Hand-spit handshake

Gentleman’s deal.

Makes it real.

*

The economics of

Usury.
