right.
so.
i've adopted something.
a new motto

my new motto
is
"i've got one more silver dollar"

because
it is true.
that is how i remember my father...
he gave me a real silver dollar

you know
it was uncirculated
mint condition
and this is his life people
1878 liberty head, 100% proof 9.25 silver
minted in san francisco

and i said
"daddy, whats this worth?"
and he said
"well, in the condition it is now
it would be about 50 dollars"
and i looked at it sitting in the plastic protector
and i said
"cool"
and he took it out
placed the thing in my hand
and told me to keep it on me.

"whatever for?"
"in case you're ever, you know, stranded on the road or
out of money...
you can tell someone what it is worth and barter for it to get home..."













my father
knows me
we are truly kindred
and at that
gypsies.

when i pocketed that dollar
it was as if i was just given my birth certificate
when i put my hand on it in my pocket
it says
"you're going to Oklahoma"
and when it is raining and i am stranded with no bus
it reminds me
"for love for love for love for love, for love was all her game"
it is like my soul
so old
and still in such perfect condition.

and i will always
no matter what
have one more silver dollar.
