Galen Paschal

Made of Metal

I put my faith in accounting
in coinage in metal in paper
in plastic things weighted
or intangible to speak of

the need the knees a plea
explosion consumption
all things precious perfect
the surfeit the dear

what is it exactly money
whispers in the ear It plies
with drink the surface ripples

and shrinks the muscle memory
inherent in swiping that verb ripe
and perfect for the plucking

Galen Paschal resides in the sunny and spacious clime of Albuquerque, New Mexico with his wife and son.
