10-cent Haiku

17 10 2008

…wished in my pocket

and pulled out a dime.

This is my 10-cent Haiku.

Shiny silver friend,

I will never let you go.

Look, an ice cream truck

From Calef Brown’s wacky collection of poems and illustrations for children, Flamingos on a Roof.

I take it shinny is a typo.

And ah the good old days – when you could actually buy ice-cream for a dime. Pretty soon all a dime will get you is stock in GM.
