Carl Sandburg - Girl in a Cage

HERE in a cage the dollars come down.
      To the click of a tube the dollars tumble.
      And out of a mouth the dollars run.
 
          I finger the dollars,
          Paper and silver,
          Thousands a day.
 
      Some days it’s fun
              to finger the dollars.
Some days…
              the dollars keep on
              in a sob or a whisper:
      A flame of rose in the hair,
      A flame of silk at the throat.
