Coins Of History

towers of hours pile up and time slides on
along the canals and waterways of memory

to places we go to places we are from
sings the ancient song of the wear

faucet flow on and faucet coughs up
coins of history

the stolen goods from wars passed and people’s
remains staring wide-eyed at our open flesh

wounds of the secrets we all carry
