Silver and Gold

A raw shimmer spread through her

never paying mind to the thronging crowd amassing

they would just have to wait

light sensations washed over her she had deemed long forgotten

when she’d been damn near dead inside

like a brick of wood, grim and brimstone

parched and wilted, broke and brute

time had finally pitied her and taken a turn

her eyes were dancing goggles

her fingers dabbing at the moisture she couldn’t help forming

she was full to the brim

with elation surpassed and perpetual bliss abound

she took an extra breath

drawing in the serenity albeit robotic,

that the carpeted corridors of power and high ceilings were offering

it had been 30 days too long in the wilderness

but finally some significant zeroes had checked in

bringing with them a false sense of wealth

not even the grim looking loud teller

could tell her down

this piper was demanding payment
