We AloneWe alone can devalue gold
by not caring
if it falls or rises
in the marketplace
Wherever there is gold
there is a chain, you know,
and if your chain
is gold
so much the worse
for you.

Feathers, shells,
sea-shaped stones
are all as rare.

This could be our revolution:
To love what is plentiful
as much as
what is scarce.
