Squashing Pennies is dedicated to the memory of Mark Szulgit.


I promise to pay the bearer
The sum of,

A ritual, your currency
I'll pay you,

And I promised to be lost
Be upright and be vital

The thrum and hum on the tracks
The metal and the pressure

Squashing, pennies
Only, only, ever
After, after we're, gone
Pennies, memories some change
Sleep deep, sleep deep
And rest
Returns the other sun set

And I want to tell you that I love you

And these words these words they don't say Enough

And I want to tell you that I see you

May our stride be strong and always,
Upright and vital

And you showed me strength and play and
Acres of wisdom

All we were doing was
Squashing the pennies…
