Occupy Poetry

APRIL 15, 1978

BY Spiros Zafiris

forgive me sweet Dominique
for advising you to purchase your traveler's checks
in Canadian dollars
but then again
should i be asking your pardon
no, of course not
you should not have heeded
for a poet in love
has as much insight in world economics
as they who flip silver dollars in the air
and never catch them
because some shiny penny on the dusty floor
always catches their attention
before the big coins even reach
the crest of their short, fast journey
to never return to the senders
but always
time after time
into other palms
