Two cents

We sorted ourselves
into tidy piles

like a coin collector
sorting through pennies

(or maybe nickels
if he has more money)

until we shared our own
two cents among

slanted stacks
of well-traveled change.

You (a copper-topped coin)
and me (bronze faded

from age) together
a pair of pennies 

spared a life apart —
changed for the better.
