INVESTMENT

 

            The honey of peace in old poems.

                        – Robinson Jeffers (“To the Stone-Cutters”)

 

A man wants to stay out of the red

investing too much in the wrong things

that dull your senses, erode the granite’s edge

into homogeneous uniformity like gravel.

 

We wear down with the friction of time

and interest, but passion’s advantage

rests with satisfaction beyond currency

building a history one rock at a time.
