walking the few blocks down the hill
with a dollar in my pocket
past the Presbyterian church
and neighboring houses
through the vacant lot
to get to the shortcut
Sliding down the dirt embankment
to the parking lot on Rainier Avenue
I make sure I have my dollar
(plus five cents for tax)
then walk up to the window
‘Four hamburgers, please’

Four hamburgers for a dollar? Now that’s value for money!
Nice one, keep it up.
1970! I don’t remember what their regular price was, but on Wednesday you could get four burgers for a dollar.
