Penny Revelations

For a penny

you can gamble your reflection

veneered reverse of silver

invites bronze

Revelations pending

for a penny

nominal persuasion

tempting, come

Caretaker of the looking-glass

awaits you

beckons, whispers 

her compelling song

Listen to hypnosis

for a penny

shall you risk the void

a penny scratch, you’re gone

  1. This makes me think of the way you put a coin in a fair or park’s fortune teller. How a penny may pay for one’s thoughts. 🙂 I liked the way your poem went into imagination.
