Lost Pennies

Countless
copper Lincolns
ground into the street,
trampled over,
valueless, currency
nearly obsolete.

Nearly obsolete,
one hundredth a part,
lost in rounding,
needed only to
complete.

When incomplete
satisfies completely,
fractional presence,
ignored, stray threads
could fall apart –
unravel the
core.
