Gumball Prize

Ever since I was small 
I loved the gumball machines
they stood like little soldiers 
along the walls of small business stores, 
restaurants, and in the mall.

Sometimes they held M&Ms, 
sour tarts, or small toys. They used 
to cost a penny, then a nickel and a quarter
but didn’t matter what they were, my dad

always dug deep
into his pocket to come up
with the correct change 
so I could take a turn
and get my special treat.
