One For Your Wallet

If this poem could

fit inside your pocket,

would you carry it?

Or is it for money alone

to live in your wallet;

to be sheltered from the rain,

to be held,

to grasp your gaze?

You ask,

what is the value

of a word

to a merchant?

It cannot buy food

or heat,

It cannot bargain

with time,

or give you jewlery,

stuff -

but looking enough,

some words

could gain

your heart.
