Spare Change ~ Two Tankas
Dawn to dusk he works
all his life but work’s not done.
Gold’s a slattern wife
hard to keep, easy to steal
always laughing while she cheats.
The world is waiting
for signs and comets and change.
Only signs appear
in the hand, flashed on tv.
Change, comets, can’t be written.
