the only gold we ever found


we found the flake after a day of shoveling dirt into a gold extracting contraption my dad built out of air ducts and the air filter from a truck. it was 2009 or 2010 in the heyday of our gold ventures in clear creek. some time later i gave him the gold to keep safe while i traveled to s korea. he lost it somewhere in his house. or at least he can’t remember where he put it. it’s probably in the same spot where he hid and forgot his alleged $500-winning scratchcard.
