empty/full wallet

the world has taught us that love is cheap.

sacrifice a few foiled sheets of paper

to the gods of lust and they will let you

feel warmth prickling your skin once more

 

but your money will never again buy

her sweet maple skin or her

smile pressed against your lips or her

laughter that danced on stacattos that chopin could never recreate

 

 

did no one tell you that

money only has so much power?
