Tossing Quarters

Luis Jimenez

When my brother passed,

I said I would quit-

it was never a promise-

I could see through my shit.

I have nothing but time,

I could do it my way-

corner store to buy beers,

and toss quarters all day.

Here I get treated well-

where you found me before,

you have found me again,

and you'll find me once more.

But soon I will begin,

to finally leave this place-

my coins are falling flat,

I am losing your embrace.
