Tiredly she searches the depths of her purse
as eager hands await the treasure
of tiny metal pieces

Eyes glow in reflected pools
mesmerized in fluid mirrors
constantly changing

The clumsy drops break gentle ripples
sinking beneath him softly casting
magic spells from dancing fingers

one for love
one for friendship
one for loss restored

worthless now
this cast-off copper
send their pleas to gods

before they've landed, his ritual done
carelessly misunderstood
he turns and skips away
