PAYOFF
(11/2/06)


getting up
each morning
and preparing
for work
as I have
so very many
mornings before
makes me wonder
in what final form
my pot of gold
will appear

will it be
enlightenment
salvation
security
wealth
power
love?

maybe
holding a pebble
in a shaking hand
as the lights dim
and the cold
descends
is enough
to prove
that we
were
here
