Pocket Change
~~~


The Donut shop
two hours till dawn
he rifles through the trash
He offers not a second glance
cares less that I go past
~
A coffee bought
then found a spot
to sit and reminisce
He wanders in with hapless grin
as thunder and lightning flash
~
Can I help you Sir ?
as time stood silent
a lengthy moment still
His answer came from my reply
a nod ... I'd catch the bill
~
He sat and savoured
every sip
the rain beat at the door
I ordered one to go
and left
enough to pay for four
~~~
