Big Money

and now after the event
and the big money’s spent
the spare change rattles around in the pocket
it makes for a big weight and a jangly noise
but there’s very little value
a couple cents will go here and a couple cents go there
from the weight of it you’d think there’s a store of great wealth
but soon it will be gone
what will be left? an empty pocket
with little to show for it

About Scott Schoffstall

I'm a relatively new poet having started in earnest 11/2010. I have sought the authentic and am still on that quest. I've diverged from the norm yet always reached for the universal. My interests were always beyond the here and now. Beyond the taste, touch, smell, hear, see. Where the mind and the spirit transcend the physical. They say perception is reality. Is it? Are we truly all there is?
