e Coin Behind Your Ear

Written by: Connie Wanek | Biography
 Before you knew you owned it
it was gone, stolen, and you were a fool.
How you never felt it is the wonder, heavy and thick, lodged deep in your hair like a burr.
You still see the smile of the magician as he turned the coin in his long fingers, which had so disturbed your ear with their caress.
You watched him lift it into the light, bright as frost, and slip it into his maze of pockets.
You felt vainly behind your ear but there was no second coin, nothing to tempt him back.
No one cared to know why he did it, only how.
