Susan Hawthorne #243 excess and loss

in the dusty drawer where the lost poems were found
was also lost money
money lost because I changed countries
the losses in exchange rates
coins and notes lost because they were useless
the Euro killed mark franc lira and more
no spending allowed
an old five pound note no longer tradable

among coins notes and poems
are disused mobile phone sim cards
for India Germany and Italy
along with floppy disks
which you can't insert anywhere
(unless you buy a special reader)

so much excess and so much loss
