Her Riches and His Reasons

“He has found stars hiding in her thoughts
pearls in her bosom
silk interwoven through her words
dripping wine for her season
Gold inlaid in her anointed skin
rubies on her lips, frozen

           Yet he searches, like the penniless do,
            mocking her riches, for his reason.”
