Penny Tanker

Penny Tanker

An oil tanker
Full of pennies
Ran aground
On a reef
In a gulf

It ripped and
Roared over banks
And settled on
Sand and stood
As salvage

With a hull
Full of copper
And a fuselage
Full of oil
Ceasing to boil

How small a coin
Can do so much

Concerned with memory, currency, and destiny, I strive to capture each one as they happen. Join me and consume reality! Radio Reality. City!
