One peso short

I have never

been happier

to receive loose coins

when the taxi driver

gave me the change

it made my heart

sing with “AHHHHHHHH!”

as if angels came down

I counted the coins…

one, two, three…

…fifteen, sixteen, seventeen.

It is one peso short

but it still

made a difference

because he tried

when almost everybody else


he tried…

at least
