One damn dollar, I got left. What the hell am I gonna do with a lousy dollar? Hit the dollar-menu? Don't need an appetizer, I'm frickin' starved. Somebody stole my blanket. I'm 'bout ready to freeze to death.... if I don't starve first.

I'm thinkin' I'll just end it all.

I see a boy cryin' by a flower cart. He don't have enough for his ma's present.

"How much ya need, boy?"

He looks at me with big round teary eyes.

"A dollar."

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Maybe, I'll make it after all.

His smile makes me think that dollar was worth a hundred.
