The Bargain

Alluvial Mining

The Keeper Of The Mine

The coin was buried very deep

on a hill overlooking a grave

of a woman

who died

before I was born.

I found it there

as I dug for bones

for a little something I do

when the Moon is full

and turns blood red

and the stars burn out

and fall

from the sky

with a scream.

Strange it should be here

that one single coin

on the hill

above the grave

of a woman who died

before I was born.

I wondered

if the odd little coin

was worth anything

it wasn’t made of gold or silver

it wasn’t covered in jewels

it was just an

odd little coin

I dug up

on a hill

overlooking a graveyard

when the Moon was full.

The answer I learned

came from a man

who saw the coin in my hand

at the shop where they

buy such things

with no questions asked.

He said with lust

with passion:

and longing

” I’d give my soul to own

one of those.”
