Dime Candy and Dill Pickles

Dime Candy and Dill Pickles





Stopped at a gas station this morning on the other side of town

and it had been a long time since I experienced a place like that.

It took me back to a feel-good time,

when you could get a pack of candy for a dime.


They had Now and Laters, one at a time, not by the pack.

Candy and dill pickles galore.

Twinkies, cigarettes, human hair by the pack,

incense, scented body oil, pantyhose that don’t fit,

and you could play the lottery too…
