He Wanted Nothing but a Dollar

What would it take to kill your soul?

By Rapid Eye on iStock (image licensed by author)

He wanted nothing but a dollar
He had been standing daily on his corner

by the stoplight for almost a year now
Skinny in a way only the old guys get to in life,
Straight up and down,
no butt or hips,
just old man lean and gnarly
Old beyond his years,
time had not been kind to him,
nothing left now but a life of long and painful days
Weather beaten
