Funk Fixer

1

Today is our silver anniversary yet I know my wife thinks this day won’t bring anything special. Years after the economic crisis, my little art business is still trying to get up after a five-year continues fall. Simultaneously, our once in love hearts have been drifting apart. Love is essential, but money affects it in dire ways. In short, we are broke, financially and emotionally.

Gazing at the newly-painted building I bought with my personal savings, I whisper a prayer that this last effort will work. I hope Funky Munky will fix our pocket and of course our broken hearts.

Greed

Money stacks tower,
casting shadows that lengthen–
extend my power.

Will you be happy,
to sleep  in bed of millions,
locked up, all alone?
