My Luck

My luck
lay in the road
copper side up
and copper side down
It shone
I passed it by
I turned around
I picked it up
I shook
my beggar’s cup
quite full
I left it there
to be refound
I bent down and
I unbent up
copper side down
copper side up
between the air
and ground
left there picked up
My luck
