Loose Change

You’re rattling around in my head
like loose change worth a fortune

what do I do with you
how to honour value when it cannot be spent

put you in a piggy bank shaped like
my fucking aorta
your name safe in my veins

that taunting jangle
of all my golden memories of you
too timeless to forget

how rich am I
another coin for every second I spend
window-shopping at the sight of you

all your preciousness
all your pricelessness

& me with my overflowing chest not
knowing how to invest.
