The piggy bank (a misnomer) sits
it’s ceramic surface
its shape, an awkward beauty.
A mysterious hand
(call it fate)
deposits a coin,
seemingly worthless, into the slit
that opens its interior to the out-
The piggy bank (that’s actually shaped
like a bathtub
or a bible) takes in the coin
and like a planted seed of an idea
as each moment another coin is added.
Thus experiences are recalled,
in a grand inspiration
purchased by the mind of the piggy bank
and transformed from thought
into something beautiful.
