diamonds or candy; either way riches are subjective…

when a poor man
reaches for a candy
necklace for sustenance
— does he wish it was made
of diamonds?

pockets where change
falls out with each
step means nothing
without emotional
gratification

to be appreciative
of each moment
regardless of consequence
is more important
than a row of stung
semi or precious
stones
