    Smile dust in the mouth

    Hello.
    I can guesss what the underlined phrase means, but I'm not sure.
    Would you please tell me what it means exactly?
    Thank you.

    Paul's family did not own land. He was paid for his work,
    but everyone knew that money was nothing but dust in the mouth.

    Re: dust in the mouth

    It means something ephemeral, temporal, worldly, and ultimately without value.
