The Queen's Dagger

(July 31 1997 / Vermont)

Dirty Diamonds


The score is zero
when all that you have are
diamonds and an empty box
where your heart is supposed to be.

That empty box will never be filled
as long as you live this way,
betraying your heart and soul,
just for a dirty diamond.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The idea came to me while playing solitaire and the only ace I had was a diamond, but it turned into me raging about golddiggers. I would die before I married for money, but that's just me, and I have a while to wait before then, anyway.

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
