Egrets Reading

one dollar

Today I received a crisp dollar bill in the mail from Modern Haiku.

Meanwhile, the US Mint is releasing a new dollar coin. Somehow, even though it's the same, receiving a coin in the mail for a haiku wouldn't be as satisfying as the dollar bill.

I don't know why. Neither buys much, but for whatever silly reason, it just feels like the haiku is worth more in paper currency than it would be in coin.
