A Roosevelt Dime


A 1994 Roosevelt Dime

Shiny like
The Tin Man from Oz or
A rodeo girl’s buckle and spurs

A 1994 Roosevelt Dime

Ostentatious like
The silver sequined gown that Maryanne wore to the prom, maybe
Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate

A 1994 Roosevelt Dime

I’ll keep it in my pocket, and
I’ll go to Berdine’s

Thanks for the prompt, Ms. Rose.

  1. Interesting how coins are collected and reflected.
    With my parents working in restaurants, and hubby’s travels out of the country I have oodles of foreign coinage. As well as some left over collections (not large) of relatives.

    I might try another of LRose’s prompts another week. Every time I think I’m caught up I get further behind. And I’ve even dropped some prompts.

    I don’t remember nickelodeon’s, but I do remember putting dimes and quarters into Jukeboxes…
    (and pay phones too.)
