First Paycheck (Found Poem 1)

First Paycheck
By Joseph Benavidez

How did you spend your first paycheck?

1968? I didn’t, didn’t spend it right away
               waited for other checks
      already a middle-aged loser
            I put it in the bank,
       never looked back
(until)
        Digital camera, clothes-TJ Maxx!
                winter coats for my brothers
                    and food. Food.
(wanted) portable cassette player.
