The Least Coin

The least coin -
I wonder --
does it know it is
the least?

It spends just the same as all the others
looks just the same

when it leaves
the palm of the least,
it may well end up
in the palm
of the wealthiest

the least coin
and spends
if, like its brethren,
not always

if the value
be in the spending
then perhaps
the least really
is the most

we hold tight to
those big paper
coin of the realm
symbols – but the
pennies – those we
fling into the world
