Payment Rendered

If I had to pay for my words, like a pay as you go cell phone plan or vowels in Wheel of Fortune, what would I write? I am not independently wealthy, the mortgage or rent must be paid and the utilities. I do not eat much, but even that little requires payment. Would I write? If the need to write were so great that I took from one coffer to pay into this coffer, what words would I buy?  Would they be words that spoke to me now only to expire later or would they have life and never need to be purchased again? And would they be words for me alone or large enough to share with you?

As I take the crumpled bills and change out of my pocket and lay them on the counter what words will I take home to write?
