Nothing Green about the Gold She Sees

Who digs deepest doesn’t always get
to keep the gifts. It helps
for the poet to be

beautiful. Does she believe the homeless
man who shouts
“those are gorgeous legs”? What does she have to lose

now in this 49th year? Maybe earrings—but
nothing else. Jewelry
makes her anxious. When

will the wanting stop?
She had a yellow dress once—
it was too much.
