Good Luck Charm

By Victoria Pirenoglu

Can I be the pretty little penny in the bottom of your fountain?

The one that catches the corner of your eye

with a slightly rusted sparkle;

Waiting to reveal her true copper polish.

I promise not to tarnish as long as you keep me at my best.

I will face heads up, giving you all the luck I can wield.

I am small but valuable.
