she sighs and says

 

I left my change
in the machine

 

she leaves the room
 

every one of us
makes a sound
resembling this
 

alternately we
consider the emptiness of our own
zippered pockets
 

not one of us with an extra dime to spare
 

being all possible
each day is simple
a lever
a pulley
an inclined plane
 

when she returns we have all reversed
direction

 

 

 

PAD #3 (machine)
