Six Coins

by Justine C. Tajonera

Lived or spent?
The line seems so slim
as I plod through my days.

This morning, as we scrounged
for spare change
for my morning commute
we looked at each other
and laughed.

We are walking
in some dire straits
but at least we still
get to eat
our pancakes
in the morning. 

I kiss our son
and walk out
the door
keeping our laughter
in my hands,
with the six
that we
put together.
