Writer's Cramp prompt: exploring what I'd do (as a kid) if I found 10 dollars.
Sawbuck

In my mind,
the places to find
money unclaimed and free,
that I found just for me --
came from the street
outside a place to eat,
under cushions of the couch,
hidden deep in the pouch,
or,
in a wallet owned by dad.
Would he miss one if I had?

In my youth,
when I lost a tooth,
a fairy stashed it there,
under my pillow with care --
a sawbuck just for me
inspired toothless glee,
smelling better than laundry.
Yes,
crisp and fresh,
sometimes I wish

I saved it in a bank
like a Swiss franc,
earning interest annually --
but, not so in reality.

A sawbuck for me,
was enjoyed merrily.
But, they're all gone
like the end of a song --
each fed to the alligator,
the depository incinerator.

Memories of that cash,
now dreams up in ash.
