Dime Room: NaPoWriMo 2015, Day Seven

If I had a dime for every nickel I’ve spent—
forget it. I never was any good at math.
Each dime is a drop of water, and I dream
of it sliding cool and thin down my throat.
But then I’d be weighted down, even more
than I am now, even less able to achieve
lift-off of any kind, even more earthbound.
If I had enough dimes, though, I could buy
a space station and a launcher to get there.
Or I could pour them all into a dime room,
swim and dive in them like Scrooge McDuck.
I bet that’s sublime, too. And changing.

    This is awesome! I love the math and Scrooge McDuck references. Congrats on the feature on NaPoWriMo! I’m so glad you were, so that I would come by and read your delightful poem. -heidi
