If you follow your bliss, you will always have your bliss, money or not. If you follow money, you may lose it, and you will have nothing ~ Joseph Campbell

"I can't eat these"

she said
pushing the plate back from her place--

as though the biscuits were somehow
to blame for
the giddiness
and the tired feeling
in her stomach

all the pennies in the world
won't catch her breath
or releive the pressure
at the base of her skull

her skin is dry
with the change of the seasons
and soon
the tears will want to come
but they are gathered in the brace of pheasants
and attached to the fallen tree outside
